Over the Rainbow

A dream that I dared to dream came true, and it is overwhelming me.
Three years ago, as my first illustrated book was published I fantasized about my second one.
The fantasy was about a very dear song by Naomi Shemer that lift my spirit up every time I hear it.
Naomi Shemer, Israeli musician and songwriter, hailed as the “first lady of Israeli song and poetry”
was a true love of mine since I was a child.
I felt as if she had written her songs just for me, telling me secretly all the true things about life.
I illustrated “The Short Tour”!
The book was published by Am-Oved Publishers, edited by Dalit Lev and Graphic Designed by Gila Kaplan.
I am grateful that I was accompanied by Naomi Shemer’s daughter ‎Lely Shemer.
Here are some illustrations from the book, and as for the technique, I glued it: One Piece At A Time… like Johnny Cash : )
