Karim’s Halloween costume

October 31, 2011

Halloween’s parties are finally over. I stayed home on Saturday night so I missed on people’s crazy ideas this year. However, several friends posted pictures of their costumes on facebook. My friend Karim with his giraffe are my favorite! He included pictures of the costume in process. I love the tongue and the little details he did with the painting.

PS: Karim is an illustrator. You can check more of his work on his website: http://www.karimaldahdah.com

Scattered – Illustration Friday

October 18, 2011

My submission for this week’s topic “scattered”. I like the contrast between the repetition of the peers in this pattern and the irregularity of the textured spots. I found a water drop by mistake on the drawing, and I loved the effect. So I randomly added more on the sheet, it diffused and  it did this interesting effect. Enjoy!

Poulet aux Prunes is Marjane Satrapi’s new movie. Unlike Persepolis, this is her first live-action movie. Don’t miss the chance of seeing it, it’s absolutely stunning.

Saloua Raouda Choucair exhibition

October 12, 2011

The Beirut exhibition center in Beirut is showcasing the work of Lebanse artist Salwa Raouda Choucair’s in an exhibition entitled “Retrospective” (September 27th till November 13, 2011). If you are in Beirut you might like to visit, it’s great!

The artist was born in Ain el Mereisse (Beirut), in 1916. Her work is versatil, from sculpture, paintings, typography, textil design and jewellry. A lot her work is made of pieces that perfectly fit into each other (see first image), which is, according to the artist, due to the fact that they were done during the war, a time where humans were so far from each other. She wanted to bring them closer.

My favorite piece is the bench, which was executed in downtown Beirut in 1969. I absolutely love it. I imagine moving each piece and then putting them back together. It’s just a small fantasy of mine : ). I also love her calligraphy. Check out the photos, and you can also read more about the exhibition in the link below.
