The ugly side of life

About a month ago I was asked to illustrate the title "Retire Yourself". I was working on this one during the November events in Israel. I knew exactly what the specific moment is that I was trying to describe, the warmth of the boat's timber, the shadow of the foliage on my face, the absolute silence in and out- it was me there.

I came across this strange doll a few weeks later, while hiking with my father in beautiful country side up south. Huge piles of trash thrown in the open green field made me realize that this doll that was lying there in the exact same pose is the closest to living my fantasy.
