40th Renaissance Celebration

Renaissance is celebrated annually in Oman. Last July 21 was the their 40th. It is the day Omanis celebrate the day the Sultan came to power.

The Times of Oman printed a supplement for this special day and i made an illustration as a header for the supplement. There were 3 sections and we used 3 different colors for each with the same illustration.

doodling while seriously working

Yesterday i was doing some arabic caligraphy for a book cover. it was my first take on another alphabets and play with it. so i had to take a crash course on arabic history and its calligraphy. i am actually loving there alphabets and how it it written.

while getting really serious with it, i played around with the brush in illustrator. these are what i call the "arabic elements leftovers". hahaha its hardly arabic-looking types. these are not even real words. just little elements i played around with. some of these were used on the cover i was working on.

and while i was at it, i distracted myself with doodling the faces of the people around me. the brush was kinds cool! hehehehe 

i will post the book cover after the books comes out.

World Cup 2010 Animal Predictions

Apparently, Paul wasn't the only oracle for the 2010 world cup. There is Harry the croc from Australia who predicted Spain to win. A parrot named Mani from Singapore predicted that Netherlands will win.
Mani was the only one who predicted the outcome wrong. :D
I'm not good with animal illustrarions but this one was good! i loved how i composed this. I think i did all this in about an hour.
