Etgar Keret: What, of this Goldfish, Would You Wish?

Just got the latest issue of Prospect Magazine. I illustrated a short, dark, quirky, surreal story by Etgar Keret titled 'What, of this Goldfish, Would You Wish?' It starts: 'Yonatan had a brilliant idea for a documentary. He’d knock on doors. Just him. No camera crew, no nonsense. Just Yonatan, on his own, a small camera in hand, asking, ‘If you found a talking goldfish that granted you three wishes, what would you wish for?’

Hell's Kitchen & New York Historical Society

Just back from a great trip to New York. Visited amongst other places, Hell's Kitchen Flea Market and found some unique bits and pieces. Also saw these buttons and badges at the New York Historical Society, which house artefacts and objects from 'everyday life'. The museum had a moving display of photographs taken by New Yorkers on 9/11 and metal fragments from the planes that hit the twin towers. P'raps the best museum in NYC.
