Critically acclaimed adaptation of the biblical Book of Esther, including original English translations, Hebrew calligraphy, footnotes, and an extensive bibliography. The project was a labor of love that spanned three continents and seven years. Thank you to everyone who has supported the book and shared it with their friends.

Drawing on Tradition: The Book of Esther
A traveling exhibition of original art and enlarged prints from the graphic novel, Megillat Esther. The Jewish Museum of Maryland curated and premiered the exhibition in March 2009.

In 2010, the Yeshiva University Museum in New York City hosted the exhibition. In addition, I was invited to be the museum’s Teaching Artist-in-Residence. In 2011, the Sixth & I synagogue in historic Washington DC hosted the exhibit.
To see more photos from the exhibition check out the album.
