Thumbelina feeling

That moment when you're in the middle
when the world becomes a dot
the world becomes a universe
you no longer fit
and you have that feeling

and you know
that all you have to do
is close an eye, open a heart
and hope
that the light on your head is longer than your shadow

Happy new year!

library wall painting

Recently i have done a small wall painting for The Palestine Writing Workshop , it's for their library, it was my first wall painting, but i think i would love to do it's a lot of fun and quiet relaxing, especially since it was such a quite lovely place to work in

some more detailed views

book illustrations in progress

here's what i've been up to so far, it's so fun working on this book though i wish i was less busy with work so i could work on it more consistently, i tried some new techniques in it and i'm pretty pleased with results

reem and her auntie

the cute kitty :3

two pieces i'm still working on, the fun thing is that they have so many details and little objects

i love how colorful all the pieces look together, i admit i am very excited to see the book done! hope the printing will get the colors just right

Night in

Happy Eid everyone!

Just a drawing i've been doing for a while to keep me entertained, it's nothing much really, i just needed something fun to do when i needed a break form work :) i like it's composition though
I added some flowery texture in photoshop later, though it looked nice!

I should seriously get a scanner, my scanner crashed and i've been using a camera istead, which is quite hard and i dont feel the details and feel are well captured.

A little suki love! poor cat is having a soar throat his voice is a bit husky so he's actually sleeping more than usual, never thought than was possible!

character sketches

i am planing on being more active, its been a while now without any posts form or anything, , having more than one job is quite tiring i barely find the time to draw or concentrate on my illustrations, hopefully i'll get more organized and find time to regularly post some drawings or at least sketches , anyways i thought i'd post what i'm working on to get myself started. i am illustrating for a new kids book, and here's the main character design

i am working on the drawings now, will post some of them soon!

my field of poppies

In me,
fields of poppies
wind sways
petals of shelter
promises of eternal sleep

In your touch,
promises of peace
shivers of skin

your hand
makes it more of a dream
my field of poppies and my eternal peace
