Last Painting of 2017 – Steps

I don’t do new years… Usually.

But, 2017 was eventful. My life has been eventful since December 2015, so if I don’t mark the date I’ll continue to feel like I’m feeling now; I’ve been working non stop for 2 years  non-stop. No breaks or milestone. no nothing. Only grinding.

I wanted to send some of the businesses I work with too. The old-fashioned postcard way of “Hey, It’s a new year! In hopes it brings us success and blessings”, but digitally.

So, this illustration happened and it’s based off a panel I drew back in 2012 in volume 2.

آخر رسمة في ٢٠١٧ – خطوات

عادةً، لا أعير أي اهتمام للسنه الجديدة.

ولكن، ٢٠١٧ كانت مكتظة بالأحداث. حقيقةً، حياتي كلها مكتظة منذ كانون الأول ٢٠١٥، ولذا إن لم أعلن نهاية العام سأستمر متعايشة مع شعور أنني لم آخذ استراحة لسنتين متواصلتين.

كما أنني أردت أن أراسل بعض الشركات والأفراد الذين أعمل معهم شكراً، وتمنياً لهم بعام مبارك ومليء بالنجاح.

والرسمة التي رسمت هي إحدى الرسمات في صفحات الكتاب الثاني الذي رسمت في ٢٠١٢.

When I say what I don’t understand, it’s more like I can’t fathom, or… what is beyond me and is leaving my baffled that it happens.

This audio was not edited at all. No silence removed or any repetition deleted. Only the swallowing sounds lol

Artistic Journal: Thoughts on daily studies and the HOW

I mentioned in the audio Jerzy Drozd and Rob Stenzinger, the awesome guys behind Art Soundoff and the Lean into Art Cast.

If you like to get into the nitty gritty and so much into self-reflection and going in deep about the creation process, you should totally check Lean into Art.
