AUBites 2 - It was a rainy day

So rain season started and one of the main things one will realize is that the snails come out to roam around on the universities campus. It kind of reminds me of some sort of invasion. This is what I came up with!

Election shrimp

So I decided to run for SRC (student representative committee) for 3rd and 4th year Graphic Design in University. With that decision I thought of making a little mascot that will attract people's attention. Randomly I come up with this cartoonish shrimp





It had no purpose at all but to attract a person's attention after all it is a rather friendly looking shrimp. No?

Adha Eid

It maybe late, but this is a postcard I did for Adha Eid. For those who don't know Adha Eid, it is an islamic holiday where muslims worldwide celebrate Abraham's obedience to God to slaughter his son Ashmael, but Ashmael was replaced with a sheep. So on Adha day sheep are slaughtered.

So here is the postcard with two sheep drinking tea.

The translation of the dialogue:

Sheep 1: Oh God why me? I lost my job, my girlfriend left me, and they kicked me out of the house. I should die.
Sheep 2: It's ok my friend. Eid is coming soon, there you will find "help"

AUBites - A new comic series

I have always admired zoology. It was always an inspiration for me for anthropomorphic characters and get inspired etc etc

And since there are a whole lot of animals on the campus of the American University of Beirut, many that the students and staff and faculty do not know of.

So I decided to create a comic strip series based on different animals on the university, some known such as the cats and others not well known such as skinks (looks like a lizard)

So here's my first comic, a usual incident that happens when a person eats in the outdoors, he gets visited by the university cats.

Comic of the Week - After Halloween

This was supposed to be for before Halloween, but re-worked it for after Halloween.
Simply, everybody loves Halloween way too much.
