Elke Reva Sudin illustrator extraordinaire


I met Elke Reva Sudin while spending shabbos in the East Village a few shabbosim ago, she told me she was an illustrator and naturally as a guy who grew up frum I had no idea what this actually was until a few days later I was tagged in a picture that was something random she drew when I was fooling around with my computer, all of the sudden it was a color picture and pretty cool and has been my Facebook picture for the last couple of weeks.

I then asked her to draw a picture of Chassidim protesting me, in a similar picture to the Niturei Karta protesting Israel. I like it and you all should check out her Website which features a series called Hipsters and Chassids, in which she went to Williamsburg and blended in, mostly due to her tznius look and did some way cool drawings including the one below which she calls Lee Ave.

    The illustrations are fantastic!

    ‘Halavi’ that the protests here in Jerusalem were just some placards and shouting. Its gone way beyond that.

    Chris_B – come on my blog and tell me where I was having rabes in a textual manner about fapping, I tried to dig through here but I can’t find it.

    My bad, sincere apologies! I had you confused with FrumGer in the “Dear hateful unintelligent commenters who feel the need to bash me” thread. Again, sorry to confuse you with someone else and the fault is all mine.

    An illustration of you watching gay porn…so intently I might add.

    Why would you publicize that?

  • FrumCurious August 10, 2009, 7:27 PM

    I was going to say….

    I think masturbation is perfectly healthy. Though from reading Shalom Auslander’s “Foreskin’s Lament” I can see why nobody does it – all that seed you spill will be the unborn children that haunt your nightmares because you wasted them.

    At least that’s what he says he was taught.

    Edit: *Admits to doing it. 😉

  • Parent in NY or NJ August 10, 2009, 7:32 PM

    did you block “Parent in NY” from kaing comments?

  • Parent in NY or NJ August 10, 2009, 7:33 PM

    aha – you did!

    ok – welll, this will be my new call sign.

    What I wanted to say is:

    Why would you post a picture of you watching some real intense gay porn.

    Thank you.

  • Heshy Fried August 10, 2009, 8:29 PM

    Dude I didn’t block you – my spam filter is automatically on and it catches things like Gay and Porn – and now all of your comments are visible my dear sir.

    Heshy-i hate your blog and all your complete moronic and immature and sometimes hurtful and destructive posts…but love you.

    The whole notion of “wasting seed” is based on the (now known to be false) idea that each sperm, hence from the greek ?????? sperma “seed”, was an individual human being that the male “planted”, so-to-speak, into the womb.

    We now know that baby-making needs both a sperm and an egg. Ejaculating outside a vagina is no more “killing your children” than taking a cell swab of the inside of your cheek.

    Besides, each ejaculation releases millions of sperm cells and there’s a chance that one of them will reach the egg. Does this mean that every parent is also an infanticidal serial killer?

    FC-pls don’t answer him.

  • Jelen August 11, 2009, 3:25 AM

  • FrumCurious August 11, 2009, 6:27 AM

    Oh no, I gotta answer this one due to the laugh it gave me at 630 in the morning.

    You’re a moron. Read the comment again and see that it’s not my words, it’s from a book.

    Once again, you’re a moron.

  • Yochanan August 11, 2009, 11:00 AM


    Did I say that they were your words? It was more of an “open letter” to those who say it’s “killing the unborn”.


  • Yochanan August 11, 2009, 11:01 AM

    And since you wrote the comment, I addressed it to you.

  • Haia Spiegel August 13, 2009, 10:26 PM

    Its great to see how far you have come…
