C.B. Lieber

The incredible Rebbe Lev Tov and his ragtag group of shipwrecked passengers… A green-faced Esther Hamalkah and a hamantasch-eared Haman… The weeping Jews in Mitzrayim and the downtrodden Fishel the beggar… Which kid hasn’t spent hours enthralled by Gadi Pollack’s awesome comics and illustrations? Let’s speak to Gadi and find out how he makes his drawings come to life.

For the past 15 years, Gadi Pollack has been illustrating children’s books on topics ranging from good middos and proper behavior to alef-beis and Jewish history. How, I ask, did he get started? “I started drawing like all kids do,” Gadi says, half joking. “The difference is that most kids stop at some point and I didn’t.” Jokes aside, Gadi attended art school for many years and trained under master artists in Russia, all of which helped him develop his wide-ranging techniques.
