Here's a recent portrait of Benjamin Franklin created for Readers Digest. Based on excerpt of a book called 'Ben and I' in which the author tries to live his modern life based on Franklin's virtues.

Here's a little bird just created for the Spanish glue company Pritt (Henkel ES). It forms part of a large project, designed by P.A.U Education called Educar, Pegar, Volar. (Educate, Glue, Fly), a Portal where school teachers can share everything about their art projects. Pritt is sponsoring the Portal. My involvement in the project is also conducting workshops for teachers in different Spanish cities and writing a guest column in their Blog.




"Maria y Yo" Graphic Novel and Film

A couple of years ago, my amigote, the great Barcelona illustrator Miguel Gallardo, published a comics book called Maria y Yo (Maria and I) about his lovely autistic daughter Maria. The book is wonderfully effective: funny, touching and enlightening and received great praise in Spain, as well as the Catalan National Prize for Comics (in Spain and Catalunya they love giving prizes!). The book was now made into a no less great documentary film by Felix Fernandez de Castro which opened last week. Below are some pages from the book, a link to it, as well as the trailer for the film. No English subtitles anywhere but you will get the feel of it.

A big part of the movie and book centers on the contrast between Maria and the so called  "normal" tourists in a resort in the Gran Canaria Island.

UPDATE: It turns out Miguel has some pages translated to English. Here there are!

Upcoming workshop at The Society of Illustrators

In conjuction with the Earth: Fragile Planet show I will conduct a collage  workshop at The Society of Illustrators on July 08, 2010  from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.  More info here.  Last year's workshop at The Society was a lot of fun. I posted about it here Come by if you're around!   Above is my contribution to the show, which is still going on until the end of the month and I had the pleasure to visit last week. Apart for the two small globes used for the eyes, all other materials in the piece were picked one morning from the floor near the market in my neighborhood. The base on which I worked was a dismantled wooden crate. (the piece had to be light to be able to travel to NY). Sadly because of the rush in sending it I don't have a better focused picture but you get the idea. While conserving the environment was never a driving force for me in choosing to work with found objects, I have been associated in the last years with several Environmental organizations who recognize in my work the educational value of reusing and recycling. One of these places in Israel is The Center for Environmental Education in Hiriya, where I have been conducting workshops for the last years. I have posted about my workshops there in the past here. And there is a gallery of the work done there, right here on your right side.... Next to my piece at the show we have included a presentation about the various educational activities done at The Environmental Education Center in Hiriya.   And if you're in the West Coast, another upcoming event will happen in LA on Sunday July 18th: 2 workshops at The Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, marking the closing of my exhibition there.
