Part 3: The Forest
This is a page from the comic I am working on for my l’Association residency. I’m doing it in a Miniature style, similar to my China vase designs. This story also takes place in the Tareq el Khurafi universe.

Part 1: A Picture Story for Irene
This is the first page of a story that I am doing for an American comics magazine called Irene. The comic sheds some light on the beginnings of the Distopia in the Tareq el Khurafi Universe, where most of my comics take place.

I am currently in Paris for a residency at L’Association, a publishing house for comics, were I will be working on 2 of my picture stories.
For the duration of my stay, and as I usually do when attending an artist residency, I will be doing a self portrait each day, mostly quick sketches, as a form of keeping a journal. I will try my best to post each at the latest by the next day, and for the moment they will be photos taken on my phone because i don’t have a scanner with me. Anyway, for now I owe a back log of 4 days.
Here is me exhausted by the end of Day 1

There will also be a number of hand made silkscreen books and prints, the results of workshop given by Barrack Rima, for sale at the event, along with Tshirts, comics, snacks and drinks. Go enjoy!
