On Hasidim and Art

A Hasid and a philosopher talk past each other…. what is the question?


A Hasid and a philosopher wonder "what is art?", but each mean it in a very different way; the Hasid is clueless, the philosopher wants the meaning

What is Art?

Frieda Vizel

Frieda Vizel left the Hasidic community, the Modern Orthodox community and the Formerly Orthodox (OTD) community. She now lives in Pomona and is actively looking for a new community to leave. She deals with the perplexities of the communities she left by drawing cartoons about them, a habit that gets her into an excellent amount of trouble.

  1. Very good cartoons. If I could give some advice though, I think you should make your lettering more standard, like cartoonish, block style. Also, your art is great, but it will look more polished and professional if you solidify your lines. I don’t know how to explain this so well, but for instance the cane should be a solid black, the chasid’s fingers should have more definition instead of just being different sized quickly drawn bumps, the lines in the art shouldn’t have the extra tracing along the long twists, the chasid’s nose should be smoother, one motion, like the philosophers nice, smooth solid line for his nose. Just my two cents, since I think you have talent.

  2. I won’t venture an artist’s analysis but only say I agree that this cartoonist has talent.

  3. Thank you for that itchemeyer! Your feedback is really appreciated.

  4. Sure! Btw, I showed your chassidim in a bar one to everyone. That was hilarious. VTF 🙂
