Last Friday was The Studio's "Portrait" exhibit... I just love that place, it feels like I'm back in highschool again every time I'm there (in a good way).
With my sweet Jumanji and Zeina
One of my fav, by Mothanna Husseini
And a detail from Sandra Dajani's painting...
P.S. One person who would have been the first in line to support me is my dear Isra', but she's out there somewhere doing something that makes me really proud of her instead... Good luck with your journey isgha2o xx
Look who's on the cover of this month's issue of OC Magazine!!!
It was such a sweet surprise to find that out, since I was told that I won't be appearing on the cover, YAY!!

Thursday nights are usually low key to me, but tonight I spent it with this little man... let's call him mister K for now (if you have any name suggestions, please shoot them my way!).
My sister calls me up at around 5pm today asking if I'd be willing to take care of a little kitty she found abandoned in our garage, I asked her to send me a photo... minutes later I get a photo of a kitten with alien-like eyes (shut-eyed and popping out from its head kind of alien eyes). I kind of freak out but take up the challenge, afteral if we were to leave the poor thing out all night it might not survive.
First thing I did after getting home was run downstairs to where mister K was, I couldn't figure out what was wrong with his eyes; even if he was too young to open his eyes, they wouldn't be swollen the way they were, so I called up a vet friend and asked him what to do, he told me to wipe his eyes with warm water and see if any puss comes out, then prescribed some eyedrops... I did just that, and after a few minutes I couldn't believe all the puss that came from tiny mister K's eyes, I was mortified/relieved/worried, I then put some eyedrops in and an hour later it was like magic, mister K is running around curiously (his eyes are still tear-filled but nowhere near what they looked like when I first saw him).
Even though it's been less than six hours since I met mister K, but that one stole my heart, I think he's a keeper!
Hope you have a relaxing weekend my dear readers.
I have been guilty for not being a regular poster. Lots of things have been going on (good and bad), I've started a new job (on top of my old one) as an instructor at a university, and I've been juggling things all the time. Weekends aren't weekends, they're just another extra two days to catch up on work (but I'm not complaining).
I did take a mini vacation in between (will post about it tomorrow). And I am planning a quick getaway to the beach sometime soon before the weather officially gets crazy.
Two projects are in the talks (So excited about them both, I'll tell you more later).
Hope you readers didn't give up on me yet (yes, anonymous commentator, I'm talking to you!), I'll be back soon (promise).
Today was one of those days where you keep pinching yourself to believe what's going on...
I was interviewed by the talented Siobhan Frost (pronounced: Shio-Ban).
Ms Frost is the mastermind behind the awesome Slanted Mansion project, where she gets to travel around the world to meet and interview artists, and I was literally blown away after she contacted me for an interview!!
We chatted over homemade banana bread and tea, then took some shots of my newly remodeled room.
Her awesomeness was featured on Frankie magazine, Urban Outfitters, Miss Moss, and other websites...
Today was one day I will never forget. I can't wait to share the photo shoot/interview with you guys!
omg omg omg I've never been as excited as today, The xx are revealing their new album in a few days, and since they are super awesome and know about fanatic fans (such as ahm, myself), they've made their album available for live streaming until the real deal is out.
Just got back from The Studio and I might say that I was blown away by the Icannotputitintowords art. If you're in town I suggest you go and check it out, it'll be going on till the 14th of this month...
Lutfi Zayed's Awesomeness on 3 boards (I think)...
...And my Alierz
A quote on a coaster (which in my case describes exactly what I'm going through at the moment!)...
