A Farewell Gift

Farwell Gift Illustration

I realized that I never shared an amazing gift that I received when I left Boston for Tel Aviv. Whoops! Let's fix that.

Only a few months before I left work (and the U.S.), my little two-person team hired a third: an amazingly talented graphic designer named Christan Balch, who became an equally amazing friend. At my going away lunch before the big move, she and my boss presented me with this illustration of lil' old me! It was drawn by Christan, of course, and wrapped up pretty in this Michael Aram frame. Does it get any sweeter?

Obviously, I'm a little biased in considering this Christan's crowning achievement, but you can see more of her work over at Behanced.


  1. That is so thoughtful and sweet! I just love it!

  2. hope cute! hope you're enjoying your new home so far!
