The Best Poems
Lucy Ayub
This piece was commissioned for the "Outline" Exhibition in Jerusalem. This special project teams spoken-word poets with illustrators and visual artists.
I was challenged to create a visualization for a poem, "The best poems", written and spoken by Lucy Ayub. 
Lucy spoke about relationships and the inspiration to create when your heart is broken and your life feels chaotic. It was a chance for me to create something fluid, full of questions and answers that I easily empathize with, both emotionally and conceptually. 
In the video below you can listen (in Hebrew) to Lucy reading part of her poem with my illustration in the background.
