the bumblebee spree } the el adly family

A few days ago I was watering my plants and made a nice little discovery. It wasn’t a global discovery, as glue had already been invented.

working on a sunny thursday morning

My little cousin was on the plane with me a couple of nights ago. She saw my sketchbook and asked me, ‘Do you draw every day?’ I immediately said, ‘Yes’. Without even thinking. Even though I hadn’t drawn a thing is days. Was that a lie? Or just circumstances which kept me from what I […]

Black Sketchbook|Boxes on the Mind

I love boxes, I love chairs, and I love women. Ok, that last bit didn’t sound quite right although it’s true. I DO love women. I love drawing and painting them, I love their wide array of emotions and complexities, and I love the fact that I am a woman. This is one of those […]
