Yehuda Adi Devir (previously here, here, and here) is a Tel-Aviv-based illustrator who has been illustrating his everyday life with his wife, Maya. Recently, the couple even included a journey that’s very important to them – getting pregnant. Documenting every joy and hardship along the way, Yehuda has perfectly captured what it takes to create life.
“We had been trying to conceive for about a year,” Yehuda told us. “While doing so, we’ve realized that a family of our own is the biggest creation we can hope for.”
“The hardest parts were at the end of each month when Maya used to have her period,” he added. “Continuously dealing with lack of success makes you feel as if you aren’t in control of your life. It’s a terrible feeling.”
“However, we’ve been together for such a long time that our friendship and love seem so strong, it feels like we can achieve everything if we work together. Challenges make us stronger.”
“I think she’s ready”
“That Art of Seduction”
“No Pain No Gain”
“I think the reason people like [our comics] is because they identify with them and relive the beautiful moments that were important parts of shaping their own relationship,” Yehuda said. “Readers see their life […] and feel that they are not alone… There are other people somewhere in the world who are just like them, who experience ups and downs in their relationships [as well] and it gives [them] a sense of relevance.” Scroll down to check out what they’ve just been through.
