For several years now, Tel-Aviv-based illustrator Yehuda Devir and his wife Maya have been sharing their life through art. Yehuda’s charming ongoing comic series, One of Those Days, has allowed fans to follow the long-term couple’s ups, downs, and hilarious everyday moments. Earlier this year, we shared the artist’s illustrated year-long journey to conceiving a baby. Yehuda’s most recent drawings document their exciting new adventure—Maya’s pregnancy!
From struggling to conceive to moving house while pregnant, Yehuda and Maya have been through their fair share of challenges recently. However, their illustrated doppelgängers ultimately demonstrate the love they have for one another. “We’ve been together for such a long time that our friendship and love seem so strong,” reveals Yehuda. “It feels like we can achieve everything if we work together. Challenges make us stronger.”
Rendered in his distinct comic style, Yehuda chronicles the precious, everyday experiences of Maya being pregnant for the first time. From her body changes and food cravings to awkward sleeping positions and their baby’s first kick, anyone who has ever been pregnant can totally relate.
