Relatable. Hilarious. Wholesome.

Legendary comic artists Yehuda and Maya Devir, from Israel, needs no introduction: the husband and wife team is a force of nature in the art world and their webcomic ‘One of Those Days’ is well-known throughout social media, sporting 5.5 million followers on Instagram alone. The couple documents their everyday life and fun parenting adventures with their two children, daughter Ariel and newborn son Ethan, through colorful, expressive, and dynamic illustrations.

They have a style that’s instantly recognizable, grabs your attention, and doesn’t want to let you go. But most of all… their stories hit you deep and hard because of how much we can relate to them. Isn’t that right, dear Pandas?

Trust is the foundation upon which any successful and happy long-term relationship is built. And it looks like Yehuda and Maya trust each other with all of their hearts and souls.

I reached out to relationship expert Dan Bacon, from The Modern Man, to get some insights into how to (re)build and maintain trust in any serious relationship. According to him, trust is something that’s given but cannot be micromanaged. It’s up to the other person to take care of and respect the trust given to them while not being pressured into doing so or regularly reminded of it.

“You need to give the other person your full trust and let them be responsible for taking care of it. It’s not something that you need to micromanage. It’s up to them to take care of the trust you have in them by being trustworthy, without feeling any pressure coming from you,” Dan told Bored Panda.

“Essentially, you give your full trust and then have faith that the other person will do the right thing. To rebuild trust, a couple can start from scratch by giving each other their full trust and then having faith that the other will take care of and respect that trust, without being pressured to do so,” the expert explained to Bored Panda.

“If a person feels like they are being pressured into being trustworthy, or are being micromanaged to prevent breaches of trust (e.g. having to give the other person access to their phone, email, or messages), resentment will build. In some cases, it can then result in a person becoming disloyal to spite the other.”

Back in February, Yehuda and Maya told Bored Panda how the lockdowns in Israel affected their family. Their daughter Ariel’s daycare had to close as well, so they had to hire a babysitter to look after her while they worked.

“Like everyone else, we too have not been able to escape the limitations of the pandemic, and we need to be very creative in order to continue working in this situation. We have transformed our lectures and workshops, taking them online, and we make sure to appear in online events as much as possible,” Yehuda told my colleague in an interview.

Yehuda and Maya also drew a bunch of comics inspired by the recent Olympic Games

The couple had been very busy during the lockdowns. They published a new online series about their private creative world, as well as a new book. Yehuda, who is an incredibly hard worker who “makes the ants look lazy,” has been in love with drawing since his childhood when he started painting on his bedroom walls. Comics from the US had a strong influence on his style.

Meanwhile, his realism-focused wife, Maya, collaborates with him on the comics. “Usually after something interesting … happens to us, we tighten the concept and do a few composition sketches. After that, I sit down and start working. When I finish, Maya adds her suggestions for improvement, suggesting color, typography, and so on. All of this process takes no more than a day,” Yehuda explained the process behind their illustrations.

The couple said earlier that once their firstborn, Ariel, was born, they had to change their priorities completely. “There is no more couple, no more team at work… only Ariel. It’s a new life and we’re getting used to it. But not in a bad way. This experience is going to create a new and better us,” they said earlier. And now their family has grown further, with the birth of their son, Ethan.

Here are a couple of photos showing the couple with their son, Ethan, after he was born
