Funny day today! Was stopped by cops for a routine check and they all ended up asking me to pose for a picture with my art! They were all excited at the length of my hair & surprised that i spoke Arabic!
Anyways, here's a contour sketch i did while yapping with a couple of friends. Like this a lot 'cos i didn't have anything in mind, was just running my hands and i did this in a couple of seconds!

Felt strangely guilty sketching instead of reading something into the night, but i couldn't resist the urge to sketch, so i did this in about 2-3 minutes. My hotel suite has weird romantic lighting in the bedroom (not really inspiring for creature art). Didn't want to desaturate the snap cos i wanted a color picture. So sorry about the quality!

I've been flooded with messages (FB, phone, visits etc) to stop the madness! To the extent that now people are even offended with the length of my hair all of a sudden! Well meaning friends said they love to see my work, but flinched from liking them on fb for fear of it showing on their news feed and its repercussions with religious folks! Wow, just when i was thinking of sharing more personal grotesque art...but i was only warming up! Now i'm really having second thoughts about sharing them. Took the opinion of close artist friends (guys and girls) and i have been warned not to go public with it! Surprisingly its the guys not the girls that seem to have a problem! No worries, i won't share personal stuff here, but i'd really like to know how folks here view my stuff. If i have offended anyone here in any way i sincerely apologize. Feel free to write. I won't bite! I assure you, i am not what i draw!

Feels like forever since i drew anything serious, but just when i was beginning to lose interest in ever painting again (Yup, drawing isn't my first love!), i am getting a Cintiq Companion tablet for X'mas! Will be sharing some detailed work soon (and some REALLY disturbing art publicly for the 1st time), so stay tuned (or away) in Jan! Anyways, caricatures are not really my thing, but here's a quick sketch for a darling little friend.

Started work at 8am, left for the desert at about 1am. Got lost running in circles (even with our GPS) in the desert and ended the shoot at 6pm the next day!!
What a crazy day!
Scouting for a location the day before and part of the miseries that ensued!
The falcon trainer. He did an awesome job to stick to my script /storyboard.
One of the many falcons we used.
Gaby setting up her camera.

Enraptured in his work i found Zizou giving directions even to the bird from time to time!!

Me and Rasheed fooling around while everyone was hard at work!
Perfect sight to end 2 days of sleepless work!
