A few of those chance encounters have blossomed into friendships—as is the case with a young artist named Matan Mazor.
Matan looks like any other 20-year-old. But the instant he starts to speak, you know he’s something special: He’s ridiculously bright, articulate, intellectually curious, and humble. And did I mention that his talent far belies his years? Here’s his take on Winston Churchill, for instance:
In one of our Facebook exchanges the other day, I asked for permission to mention him in my blog. I’m hoping to put Matar in touch with some editorial types who may have a need for his illustrations. But I thought my readers might appreciate “meeting” him as well.
Thanks for your friendship, Matan. You have a bright future, and I’m privileged to have met you.
