THE ARISTODOG

I wasn't really thinking of any profound concept, other than I happen to love canines and wanted to see how far I could push its anatomy beyond accuracy while keeping it 'interesting'


I LIKE BOOK WORMS

This piece came out of a personal trait I am specifically fond of...


MIXED SKETCHES

Most ideas for every piece I create start from a simple doodle. Here I experiment with my drawings, while pushing my style and technique by forcing myself to set rules and limitations to what and how I should sketch every piece. while some sketches evolve into a mini concepts that stand out on their own, others remain as potential ideas...

TALES OF THE LAUGHING MAN

This came out of an exercise I am constantly pushing for every time I sit down to sketch. I never try to draw in same style, hence I force myself branch out and develop my style. Here I wanted to add more 'personality' to each character: flamboyant Vs. subtle and stubborn.

Part of this piece was inspired from Will Ellsworth-Jones BANKSY The Man Behind The Wall. Graffiti is s clever way to satirize society and make a statement...however it comes at a prize as society frowns upon this art from, labeling it as pop art for vandals. However, this is by no means my personal opinion on it...





MINI MINER

For the past couple of years I have shifted my work interest into smart phone game designs. My role consists of being the art director illustrator and animator. Check out the trailer of my most recent game (available on the App store). you can find the link here


I would like to take this opportunity to give special thanks to Mounir Yakzan (Founder, Marketeer, Developer & programmer), Hani Abdallah (Programmer & Developer), Melhem Chaya (cofounder & marketeer) and Danny Bou Maroun (sound designer and music composer) as none of this would have happened without them.

Also, I'd like to give special Thanks to Kais Al Kaisi and Ameen Al Dada for giving us the (lucky) opportunity to bring us together.

MASTER ROLL

For the love of sushi...


 

THE LEGEND OF BEARCULES

This came out of an inside joke after watching Dwain Johnson's Legend of Hercules (lousy movie...)
