Nadav Weisman: 2nd Date

Last week I got mail from Israel and I'm very delighted to show you a really charming comic book today. The illustrator is Nadav Weisman, living and working in Haifa. "2nd Date" is his first comic. It is meant for Hebrew readers and therefore told from right to left. I like the surprising perspectives Nadav Weisman used to illustrate daily activities like showering or teeth brushing and his way to zoom in and out of the scenery. The reduced colour palette and the "costumes" are aimed to reflect a nostalgic atmosphere inspired by the 1950s and 1960s. The comic contains five pages with panels and is wrapped with a black & white banderole. The illustrations are drawn with soft oil pastels and pencils. To find out more about Nadav Weisman's work take a look at his portfolio and flickr. Purchase a copy or one of his beautiful prints via ArtRebels.
