Today, in my modest Jewish gifts blog, I'd like you to meet a young artist from Israel called Guychook, or as I like to call him - Dad artist. Guychook lives and works in Israel and creates these delightful pieces.
When asked why he started to draw, Guychook's replied:
"The pictures I draw are meant to put a smile on anyone who looks at them. I have had this need since childhood, to simply make people laugh."
This might not be a common idea for a Jewish gift, but it well reflects current Israeli mood - the need to smile. In my mind it makes a wonderful and an original gift for anyone with a child, or for your own children. I actually purchased one of Guychook's works for my brother's birthday, who is 23 years old…I say, if as you are young at heart, that's all that counts!
