Proud to introduce a newly illustrated book by YJ Studios: The Royal Rescue by Rabbi Shmuel Kunda Z”L. It was an honor to illustrate this book based on the exciting audio tale by the inimitable R’ Shmuel Kunda of blessed memory.
The style used was exceptionally rich and painterly – befitting a beloved classic. Creating “Disney” level quality illustration was a YJ Studios team effort. From original concept, sketching, and art direction by yours truly, to dynamic development by Nachman D., and outstanding painting by Leah H., the whole YJ Studios team is proud of this extraordinary accomplishment.
Much hatzlacha to the Kunda family, and congratulations on honoring the legacy of their father with this high quality, laminated, instant-classic. The book reads nicely along with the CD, which can be purchased separately.

Fooling around with texture brushes and ended up with Rembrandt style lighting painting of intense Talmudist. Paint time 1 hour. This would be a great addition to the popular “The face you make when…” internet meme. How about: “The face you make when your kollel is out of coffee AGAIN!”
