eve up to her antics again } this month eve photobombs the cover of bazaar magazine. the photo was taken by my sister-in-law jana alnaqeeb. the model is dawnn karen and the typewriter is my son’s. oh and i made the dress. the idea to include eve in the design was bazaar’s. lastly, a big thank you to padmini chandrasebaran for bringing it all together

I am so happy with this ledger I’ve been working on for my upcoming exhibition that I couldn’t resist sharing a few pictures with you tonight. Details about the exhibition are soon to come!

Just a quickie, I did these by firstly using decopatch glue to transfer the newsprint onto the paper, and afterwards using carbon paper to create the duplicates on top of the print. Fun!

Because I’m in love with Hooverphonic at the moment: ‘We All Float’.

The closest thing I’ve ever come to feeling in love without being in love is this. I’m excited, giddy, nervous and I’m laughing out loud because I’m happy. I wasn’t sure where I was going with this one but I think it’s finally worked and I’ll use it for my upcoming exhibition. Which means I must create more. And happily I will.

I decided to include a song on this post, so I told myself the first song that pops up on my iTunes I’ll post. But I didn’t think Run DMC’s ‘It’s Tricky’ was befitting, so I chose the second song, Metric’s ‘Gimme Sympathy’. Enjoy.

For the past few weeks the mere thought of writing in this book has made me anxious. There was so much going on and I had little inclination to write. I don’t understand why. So I’ll share some of the highlights of my days here.  Read More

The girls visited my friend Lubna at her studio LB o J’zazz last week and decided to stay behind. That’s OK because I know Lubna’s taking good care of them. In fact she’s taken to photographing them too. Here, you’ll find two of her photos among mine. Both the girls and I are in good company indeed! Read More
