Retro Sketch

Happy New Year! Hope everybody celebrated well and didn’t suffer too much of a hangover on January 1st. This year, I hope all of you get to tear through plenty of sketchbooks, canvases, illustration boards, pixels, bitmaps, or whatever you create on, and have fun along the way.

Here’s a drawing I did back in 2008. If you are familiar with Jewish practice, preferably of the orthodox persuasion, then you’ll get this drawing. If not, then what you’re looking at is a stylized take on the act and art of tefillot (Hebrew for “prayer”), along with the tools of the trade: the kippa, talit, and tefillin.
