airplane timelines } jazeera airways flight 177 dubai to kuwait } march 23rd, 2013

What a messy day this was. I got to Dubai International Airport with ample time to check-in, have my breakfast and enjoy the requisite Duty Free experience. I soon discovered that instead of booking for that day, I’d booked for the 30th. Needless to say I wanted to kick myself in the bum and then […]

Header Countdown

No, PrettyGreenBullet does not have a disease. If you’re wondering what the dots are above, they’re a sort of count up to my exhibition in December. I add a dot a day and that gives me a dose of morning fun. Simple minds, simple pleasures. And my Header page on WordPress is starting to resemble […]

Crossword Sidelines

I love crossword puzzles. You can leave me in a room with one for days on end and I won’t tire. Sometimes, however, my urge to draw is greater and I’ve never been one to suppress an urge.

Plane Sketches|June 14, 2010, Jazeera Airways Flight 256, Kuwait to Beirut

I finally ventured into my dad’s printing/scanning/uploading system and it all worked smoothly and now I’m a happy girl again. I feel so liberated. This trip to Beirut from Kuwait was quite swift and uneventful. Two hours and five minutes, an ideal time for any trip 35,000 feet up in the air. I’ve also sneaked […]

From the Bspot|Plane Sketches|December 5, 2006, Kuwait Airways Flight 178, Paris to Kuwait

On our way back to Kuwait from Paris. This time I had a window seat which I always prefer. The estimated flight time was 5 hours and 50 minutes. I was counting time by creating squares for each minute we were flying and methodically scratching them out. That flight (also a daytime flight) I saw […]

These were done on board Kuwait Airways in late 2006. I was flying with Amira Behbehani (to my left) and Thuraya Al-Baqsami (on my right). We were en route to Paris for a group show at the Institut Du Monde Arabe (also with us was Suhaila Al-Najdi sitting in Business Class the lucky duck). It […]

From the Bspot|Plane Sketches|August 22-24, Too Many Planes to Too Many Destinations|Originally Posted July 12, 2009

What was supposed to be a simple flight from Frankfurt to Kuwait turned into a nightmarish Juha-like trip which spanned three days. All thanks to the incompetence of our then travel agents. I was traveling with my ex-husband and three children, first to Amsterdam and then a road/train trip around Germany. A few days before our […]

From the Bspot|Plane Sketches|December 20, 2009|On Wataniya Airways Cairo to Kuwait|Originally Posted December 21, 2009

This plane sketch was done in my ‘Ramadan’ diary. Some may remember it. I love being up in the air, it really clears my mind. And on this crucial trip, the distance and change of scenery allowed me to open my eyes, which I had left closed for too long.

From the Bspot|Plane Sketches|June 12, 2007|On Board Kuwait Airways Flight 543 Kuwait to Cairo|Originally Posted August 16, 2009

This was a short flight aboard a rented Novair Airbus 33o (I think Norwegian). In a tumultuous period of my life, I found peace at 35,000 feet. I was alone on this trip, attending my friend Dagher’s wedding. It was my last trip to Cairo [I have been to Cairo since I posted this].

From the Bspot|Plane Sketches|December 17, 2008, Emirates Air|Kuala Lumpur to Dubai|Originally Posted June 26, 2009

I’m going to start posting my airplane sketches on here. These are drawings I do on a plane. Because I’m a nervous flyer-well, I used to be anyway-my sketching style changes. There is a purpose to most of these drawings and that’s to help me pass time.The drawings are different and distinguished in several ways. […]
