sheer genius

When I first saw France's moley, I couldn't imagine how Gabi was going to continue (and I said a secret prayer of thanks that it wasn't me that had to figure it out! lol) but when I opened the book yesterday and saw what he had done I realized he'd found the perfect answer. But don't take my word for it. See for yourself:

Gosh, I love this! This is what I call interactive artwork. Amazing, amazing job Gabi!!! I love the way it all fades together.

You should see the way it is in real life - the color from the landscape blends into the edges of the Prime Minister's hair... it's like he really is a part of it. It's so much more amazing than any scan or photo could ever convey. I can't wait for everyone to see it for themselves. Of course, that's provided I don't screw it up in the meantime! lol

aw, you're too nice! i really was at loss about what to do here, then one evening the sky had some interesting colors outside and I thought, that's it, i'll sketch that, but soon after starting i had increasing panic: omg, this is a mess, France is not going to talk to me anymore... but then it was too late, i just went with it. i hope France will still send me her next moley!

Wild! You bet i will send you the next Moly, Gabi! I love that you surrounded Ehoud with color. He needed it. Thanks Juj for posting!

Fantastic Gabi! This is the aim of this experiment taken to the extreme. A landscape on the rightside could have been perfect but I see here some kind of far dream in Mr. Olmert's mind. This completes and redefine the awesome portrait france did.
