We (writer Ehud Lavski and illustrator Yael Nathan) started making short comics and uploading them to the internet a few years ago. Our comics have been read over 20 million times so far, and many people have an emotional reaction to them.
Working closely with someone to create a piece of art is always difficult, but it helps that we’ve been friends for so much longer than co-creators. There will always be differences of opinion, but we will talk so that we can see the other person’s point of view. When it comes to choosing a narrative for our horror comics, we always choose one that we both enjoy. This is how we maintain the enthusiasm for each new narrative
.The inspiration for these short horror stories comes from a variety of sources. Some appear to be fully formed. Some are inspired by dreams. Others are victims of nightmares. I know it’s time to put a concept into one of our dark cartoons when it crawls into my skull and refuses to go away.
The following are some of our most recent projects. All three are, in a way, fairy tales: a jazz singer who makes it rain when she sings, a mysterious tattoo artist who will give you a tattoo that will transform your life, and an old man who may or may not have a time machine in his bedroom. of guests. These scary stories, like children’s stories, are very different from each other.
but we love them all equally. We can’t wait for you to join your brothers and sisters in the book by collecting them all. We sincerely hope you enjoy them. Check out our comic book collection, now available on Kickstarter if you appreciate our unique concepts.

The Tattoo Artist
Ehud: When it comes to writing, it all starts with a jumble of scribbled notes. Then I use FINAL DRAFT, a screenwriting application, to convert them into a script.
Yael: I then use an iPad to draw the frames to see how the tale flows. I use ADOBE PHOTOSHOP to pencil, ink, colour, and letter the comics once we’re comfortable with the story’s form and plot twist.
Ehud: I’m inspired by a lot of people. But, if I had to trace the genetic code of our comics, Neil Gaiman, Guillermo Del Toro, and Junji Ito would be the most influential figures. Creators who can find beautiful, wonderful, and horrifying things in the most mundane of situations.Yael: I don’t think there’s a single illustrator I don’t follow on social media. I enjoy seeing individuals create amazing works of art. Claire Hummel, Miki Montlló, and J.A.W. Cooper are three of my main influences
