This is a still shot of the animation I'm doing for Bill Plympton's Guard Dog Global Jam.

Really happy to be a part of it. He's been a huge influence on me since I discovered him. Bill Plympton's animations are pretty crazy and amazing. If you've never seen any, I strongly suggest checking them out. You can see a lot of clips on his website.

Haven't updated my webcomic this past week because I'm in the process of moving to Montreal. But will post on twitter when it's updated. Thanks to all two of you that make it a worthwhile endeavor!
Still working out color issues as you can see.

Unusual Shoes Design by Kobi Levy

Collaborating with both Israeli and international companies in the past and present years and working on his men shoe line in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Designed industrial footwear in both Italy, China and Brazil. Presented design in various exhibitions in Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Tokyo, Verona, St.Etienne, Berlin etc'… "In my artistic footwear design the shoe is my canvas". You can find more of his shoe designs here.

The trigger to create a new piece comes when an idea, a concept and/or an image comes to mind. The combination of the image and footwear creates a new hybrid and the design/concept comes to life. The piece is a wearable sculpture. It is "alive" with/out the foot/body. Most of the inspirations are out of the "shoe-world", and give the footwear an extreme transformation. The result is usually humoristic with a unique point of view about footwear. Another aspect of the creation is the realization. All the pieces are hand-made in my studio. The challenging technical development is the key to bring the design to life in the best way." (source:)

The Hand of Hope, 7 years Later (2 pics)

The Hand of Hope, 7 years Later
This is a snapshot of the unborn baby's age - 21 weeks, and it operates with a surgeon named Joseph Bruner. Infant was diagnosed with Spina bifida, and he would not have survived if he had learned from the mother's womb. Therefore, the surgeon removes the uterus via C-section and makes her a small incision to operate on the baby without taking him out of the uterus. When Dr. Bruner graduated operate Little Samuel, boy stuck his tiny but fully developed little hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger.

Dr. Bruner said that it was the most exciting moment in his life, at this moment in the midst of an operational process, he literally froze and could not move. Publishers headlined this image of "Hand of Hope." The text under the photo reads: "A tiny little hand 21-week fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerged from the womb to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if to thank the doctor for the gift of life." Little Samuel's mom said they "wept for several days, when they saw this picture. This photo reminds us my pregnancy is not an illness or physical disability, this little guy." Samuel was born completely healthy, the operation was a 100% success.

Samuel is now 7 years old.

Spina bifida - a congenital defect is incurable spine, in which a person can not just stand and walk normally. However, surgical intervention at the stage of formation of the spine when the baby is still in the womb, can completely eliminate this defect. (source:)
