Noah's Ark Papercut:
"The Waters Increased"

I cut this piece as a donation for the 2009 Temple Ahavat Shalom (TAS) Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) luncheon and silent auction, its annual fundraiser.

I tried to do something true to my artistic vision (did I type that? really?) but also that would potentially bring in some cash for the synagogue. So I've got my patterns in there, of course, but it's very obvious in its subject matter.

The verse is Bereshit (Genesis) 7:17: "The waters increased and lifted the ark, and so it rose over the ground."

Father's Day Cards

I just received a package today from Sunrise Greetings, a card company in Bloomington, Indiana. I do some card design for them every so often, and today's box had samples of a Father's Day card I illustrated for them. It's watercolor on watercolor stock, collaged together to form a shirt and tie (which I hope is obvious). If you want to order some for yourself call Sunrise Greetings at 800 457 4045 and ask for the new Father's Day cards by Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik (item # RFDGC.94484.1)!
