The Art of Calligraphy

As a beginner at calligraphy, I’ve always found calligraphy to be beautiful art. Lucky, my handwriting is good to begin with but I never attempted at calligraphy professionals until this moment. As a creative designer, I practiced typography, handwriting, and lettering especially the freestyle. It truly helped my creative mind work faster and better. And…

Back to the Basics

Right! Back after a long time with new post, and a new topic. This time it’s a little bit different, though. A lot goes every now and then and you find yourself stuck in situations that don’t seem to be solved! It’s funny, I guess but it’s true. For the longest time, I’ve been caught…

Back to Fashion Illustrating and Recording!

You may have noticed how I’ve been recording less the past few months as well as sketch fashion illustrations. But I’m finally back to my work! I truly miss recording my painting process so I recorded a new video for you guys! If you’re wondering why I record them, it’s to show you the way…

In Turkey … Again

It’s been a week since I arrived in Turkey. Remember the collaboration I mentioned in my last blog post? This is one of the reasons why I’m visiting Turkey at such a time. Also, it doesn’t hurt to tour around and visit my favorites spots too, hehe.   An entrepreneur constantly searches for new opportunities…

New Collaboration with Safaknur

المصممة الرحالة – A Traveling Designer

لسنوات عديدة إعتدت على الإنشغال بالتصاميم وغيرها عند سفري للعديد من الدول. نادرا ما أسافر بدون دفتر للكتابة، اللابتوب، أو كتاب  للقراءة. كان صعبا في بداية الأمر أن أحمل معي العديد من المواد ولكنني إعتدت على هذا الوضع وبدأت أحب أن أكون مشغولة لهذه الدرجة وأنجز ماستطعت إنجازه. لاأحب أن أترك العمل بدون إنجازه. في…

15-minutes Talk: Art Mediums

I almost forgot to post about this event! As I was thinking about what to post about this time, I remembered that a small event took place last Wednesday. I think it was on April 11th. Last month, I got invited by a PR student to conduct a small talk/presentation in one of the Universities…

Men Are From Mars and Women Are From Venus

I’m writing a different post this time. Not because I don’t have new designs or sketches to share with you, on the contrary, I have a lot more to post and share. However, it’s been a while since I wanted to share something different, more valuable than just post my paintings and the paints I…

Copic Markers and Acrylics in Fashion Illustrations

I used to paint my illustrations with comic markers (especially when I first knew about them) before using acrylics and watercolors. Whenever I explore a new painting technique or new paint/marker, I notice how the final result for my illustrations change as a result. Since I used to daily draw and paint, I don’t always…
