Description

A series of energetic and amusing drawings playing on the “stereotypical” village characters one would find in Eastern-European art or oral traditions. Having ancestral roots in this part of the world, namely Jewish ones, I also wanted to bring to light the dualism of humor and bigotry in character portrayal.
