Grit vs Inteligence

Grit is defined as “perseverance and passion for long-term goals”. This illustration was made for an article in Calcalist. The topic has been discussed at length amongst our friends. At the end of the day, it has been agreed: Grit is more important.

Intelligence might at times, represent an obstacle on the way to success. Intelligent people tend to ask questions and verify the level of risk they might be facing. Driven people with a lesser tendency of consulting their minds in calculating risks, might achieve more by not being confused by facts, while staying focused on achieving their goal.

It might be that intelligence, is overrated…

IBM urban triptych

Last week I had the great pleasure of hanging (with the help of some able people) three beautifully printed drawings of mine which I’ve branded my: Urban triptych.

The prints are situated on the 24th floor of a brand new skyscraper in Tel Aviv, welcoming those arriving in the offices of IBM’s R&D labs in Tel Aviv.

The cityscape is reflected in the glossy perspex finish of the prints, which make for an unexpected and surprising dialogue with the prints’ subject matter – Tel Aviv.
