ملايين Malayeen

It’s been ages since I posted something and I miss it.

Here is my first post after moving to London:

Album artwork for “Malayeen”, the latest and so far greatest release from anNihaya records.

Featuring the Khaled Yassine, the Charbel Haber and the Raed Yassin.

War of the Hotels حرب الفنادق

حرب الفنادقThis was the first design I did for “China”, a project by Raed Yassin, winner of the Abraaj Capital Art Prize. At this early stage, we hadn’t made the decision to make the whole series in cobalt blue yet, and I was going for a color scheme inspired by miniatures (notice the gold paint in the sun, fires, and borders).

Battles for the Unification of the Rifle معارك توحيد البندقية

توحيد البندقيةAnother of my original designs for “China”, a project by Raed Yassin about the Lebanese civil war. This was my favorite because I got to focus on portraiture. It was also the last one I drew, so I was a bit more comfortable with the style by then.

The Battle Of Tal el Zaatar معركة تل الزعتر

تل الزعترAnother of my original designs for “China”, a project by Raed Yassin about the Lebanese civil war.

These drawings were made possible with the help of the lovely Monira Al Qadiri, who was my painting assistant for this project.
