One of the nice things about being a freelance illustrator is the variety of opportunities that come your way, especially when you have a website.
I have had requests from all over the world for things as varied as designing an Israeli stamp involving Jonathan Pollard, to using one of my illustrations as a logo for a custom beer called “Lazy Rabbi.” ( That last request was from a pub in London- I respectfully declined, but I have to admit it had a nice ring to it- “I’ll have a bowl of peanuts and two Lazy Rabbis to go please”)
Recently I’ve done several maps:
The map was for Ohr Somayach International
Maps are done in Adobe Illustrator. The challenge of creating a map is presenting many layers of information while keeping the art visually pleasing. Because of the varied resolutions maps are printed at, and the precision required, using vector art is a natural design solution.
This is my illustration for this weeks Illustration Friday theme “Yield.”
Maybe, if our signs were nicer, people would actually listen once in a while.

Someone once told me the scariest thing you can meet in a forest is a clown. He’s probably right.
I made this picture a while ago using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Each one of these programs has unique features that are useful for illustration. More on that in another post. (Also: note the signature swirls)
