Cookie Moon

Tel-Aviv based artist Cookie Moon (Sara Laimon) has a varied creative practice including film, writing, graphic design, copywriting, and co-founding electronic music label Unterman.

This polymath creative approach extends to her illustration. With a style that was honed in the lockdown of 2020, Cookie Moon signed with Illustration Division, a New-York based creative agency and has since worked with The New Yorker Magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, British Airways, Expedia, Oprah Daily, Dua Lipa, RATP Group Paris, The Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, Stanford University, Harper Collins, Chronicle Books, Washington Post, Phaidon Press, Travel & Leisure magazine and others.

Since graduating with a BFA from the Screen Based Arts Department in The Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (Jerusalem, 2017), she moved to London to work for Fashion Photographer Nick Knight in SHOWstudio. Moon spent the next couple of years acquiring knowledge from acclaimed professionals, working in the film industry as script editor and casting assistant for director Amos Gitai, then as studio assistant for painter Bracha L. Ettinger. Finally she co-founded her own creative agency, Laimon Brothers, with her brother Josef, where she handled the art direction for nightclubs, musicians, festivals, restaurants and more.

She has shown her work internationally, at The ZAZ10 gallery, Times Sqaure, New York, (2020), The Morgan Library & Museum, New York (2020), The Tel-Aviv Museum, (2022), as well as at the Gelada Gallery in Tel- Aviv (2023).

Since 2022, Moon has been studying creative writing as well as acrylic painting (Department of Bezalel External Studies, 2022) in order to enrich her practice. For the past year she has been working on the illustrations for A Forest is a Family, a children’s book published by Phaidon Press worldwide, with her EU representation, Brilliant Artists.

She has begun writing her first memoir, as her most recent passion project. She has been seeking a serene space where she could dive into the writing process and bring this project to fruition. After living in New York City for a few months, she searched nearby locations and found the Millay Arts Residency, which seems like a perfect space for writing.
