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