Killer Deadline

The mayor of Tel Aviv is eager to "clean" the city  & get rid of the tents in the bulevards...
Yedioth Acharonot, a column by Meir Shalev

*Note: Because of the caos and tight deadlines, the version that was printed and published was not the FINAL version I handed in - but an unfinished version that was sent for the purpose of  getting a concept approval. 
That's editorial life in the fast lane for you...

In Memory of the late Sami Ofer

Sami Ofer, one of Israel's richest business peronas, passed away on the morning this piece was published. I hope his family doesn't hold me in contempt.
Even prior to his death, this article about the Iranian fling that Ofer & Son might have had - was a bit more sensitive than the usual. 
so the first version showed Sami & brother Yuli with mahmoud ahmadinejad in a boat, waving a helpful flag.

That didn't pass- since Brother Yuli Ofer is no longer involved in Sami's business. They had parted into 2 different business groups. 
It was Sami's son -Idan ofer - who was deeply involved...

This version then, was approved.
But just before it went to the printers, the editor insisted that I don't connect Ahmadinejad to the story, but rather throw in Meir Dagan -  former chief intelligence officer of Israel.

& This was the final version.

Banned Holocaust - or - Generation 3.0

Another illustration that was banned at the last minute. 
This time for Yedioth Acharonot's Holocaust-Day issue.
It was supposed to be a personal segment about what I have learned from the Holocaust as a person...or how it reflects in my everyday life.
I guess the scene where my son & myself (as a holocaust refugee) are playing PS2, or my overall style of things were still a bit too "comic" for the public. 

...and this was the first draft of the concept.
