Keren Rosen, better known to her followers as Dings & Doodles, is a freelance illustrator and designer based in Tel Aviv, Israel. She has worked with various well-known companies in Israel and abroad, and has drawn illustrations for numerous graphic books, commercials, magazines, and her own individual projects.

Keren’s artistic style is distinguished by bright colors and cute and humorous human-like or anthropomorphic characters. In this article, I want to share some of her unique illustrations of idioms that are just too funny when you take them literally. After seeing Keren’s works, words or expressions like “sweetheart”, “flashing light” or “full house” hit differently.
