It’s been an interesting moment since my recent project came to an end. Before anything new has yet to come along, it’s been great to have time to breathe out after the intensity of working for hours each day on a specific theme. On the other hand, it has felt unsettling to find myself suddenly without a focus.
Add into the mix both the strangeness of the current moment – when we are not quite in lockdown and yet things are not quite free flowing either – and the strangeness imposed upon me by my physical limitations. The result is perfect material for a comic in Yiddish and English.
This zine was created in the space of an hour at a wonderful zine-making hangout hosted by the ever inspiring Debbie Bamberger and Wendy Solganik for Get Messy Art. I hope you enjoy reading it. There will be more Yiddish comics coming soon!
