Yehuda Adi Devir is an illustrator living in Tel Aviv who decided to take inspiration from his own life and that of his wife Maya, to create a comic strip called " One of those days ". Thousands of people from all over the world reacted to the images and shared them, and Yehuda's comics went viral !
" I think the reason people like " One of those days " so much is because they identify with it and relive the beautiful moments that were important parts of shaping their own relationship ", Yehuda told Bored Panda.
" 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."
But there is one subject that Yehuda does not want to talk about, politics. He says he will never add a political aspect to his comic strip, because politics separates people rather than bringing them together. Yehuda prefers that his art be unifying.
Maya, Yehuda's wife, is also involved in the project. She is also an artist and she always has a say in the pictures that are created.
"Usually after something interesting happens to us, we tighten the concept and do a few composition sketches," Yehuda added. " After that, I sit down and start working. When I finish, Maya adds her suggestions for improvement, suggesting color, typography and so on. This whole process does not take more than a day. "
