Tel-Aviv-based illustrator Yehuda Devir and his wife Maya Devir have shared their loving relationship with the world through his ongoing series “One of Those Days”, from silly everyday moments to life-changing decisions. Well, the couple is back and their newest adventure – Maya’s pregnancy- has been illustrated to comedic perfection.
Yehuda and Maya began their pregnancy journey in 2018 and said the process was difficult on both of them. “The hardest parts were at the end of each month when Maya used to have her period,” said the artist. “Continuously dealing with lack of success makes you feel as if you aren’t in control of your life. It’s a terrible feeling.”
“Say Hello to Her Little Friends!”
However, despite the challenges, this creative and funny couple made it through because of their strong bond. “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,” said Yehuda.
“The First Kick”
Fans of the duo love the couple for sharing these relatable challenges and hilarious moments, “Viewers see their life through “One of those days” 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.”
“Our Valentine’s Day “
Yehuda and Maya first met during their military service and formed a relationship after a long period of friendship. “Our comic series “One of those days” is based on real-life moments that happened to us and was about creating fun memories by illustration.”
While Yehuda is the main illustrator of the comic series, his wife is also an artist and helps him with concepts and composition sketches. “After that, I sit down and start working. When I finish, Maya adds her suggestions for improvement, suggesting color, typography and so on. All of this process takes no more than a day.”
