If there is one thing that is immediately evident from Giselle Dekel’s illustrations, it is that life is hard, and this can definitely affect our private dimension — especially in the most ordinary things like laundry day, washing dishes or… Yoga exercises. That’s why you have to dive deep into every moment of escaping — an aperitif, a vacation, or a cup of coffee. “Some days we just want to escape the daily madness and retreat to our cosy bed for a few hours, to nap or relax or, as I prefer to call it, ‘self care’”.
Giselle is a Belgian illustrator and surface pattern designer based in Israel. She loves to create fun and simplistic images, using humor where she can — if not in her work, then definitely in her life. Things that people said about her work come from her kids, “Cool, that’s really nice,” and her husband, “What?”.
