Recently a friend asked if I am ever afraid to post my Jewish art given everything going on. At times, I am. But, my belief that art connects and unites us is stronger than fear. I want to celebrate and honor that spark of connection.
I've been thinking a lot today about how my comfort zone has shrunk a significant amount. I used to intentionally seek out things and adventures outside of my comfort zone. It was a lot of fun, albeit terrifying. Lately I've pretty much only been traveling back and forth from my bed, my desk, and the gym. Therefore, doing ANYTHING new takes a lot of momentum.
But anyways, I've decided to make some kind of a leap by posting my art online. This may not fall into the same category as zip lining or traveling to a new country- but it's definitely something. I felt a strong sense of irony whilst talking to them because I was, at that moment, working on the above illustration about stepping outside of your comfort zone. I can't promise consistent uploads, considering my anxiety might dictate a lot of this new Instagram account, but I'll try my best!
ps. fun fact- I will 100% guaranteed have at least one visible white-out mark or mistake on every piece. It's a thing and it happens. I also forgot to color in the star in this one before posting 😂🤘🏻
It's hard to say if this beautiful hand-painted Ghanaian movie poster is actually advertising Bloodsport 1 or part 2! It's the way of Ghana's mobile cinema to split up movies into episodic parts, charging separate admission to each section of the movie. So this very well may be for the second part of Bloodsport 1 although the scene mimics the actual Vhs cover for part 2. The fact that @jcvd and Daniel Bernhardt looked so alike during this period in their acting careers doesn't help the mystery at all either! This poster is a pretty special one btw. Dated at 2001, the closer you get to the 90's the exponentially rarer these posters become. Kumite bro! 🤜🏼🔥🤛🏼
