Reading the third aliyah today from the Torah I wrote, with the unerring Victor and Philip as gabbaim.

Shaking hands with our weekday minyanaires a.k.a the most incredible people possible.

Sheepie Invitation

I was handed a marker and a piece of scrap paper and asked to quickly draw something for our five-year-old's birthday party invitation. For the occasion the birthday child wishes to dress up as a sheep. In the background is one of our running bookshelves, with some herbs drying on strings.

Birkon design

This is for a birkon for my stepson Shelomoh, who is nearing bar mitsvah. It is made up according to his enchanting specifications: birds, a crown, initials in pomegranates, background as red as a stop sign. Since I have trouble distinguishing many hues (there is a reason most of my art is monochrome), I had to rely on the paint tube label ("brilliant red") for the last request in his list; lately I have been told that many of the clothes I thought were red are in fact some kind of orange or coral.
