End of the year resolution


welcome and hello to all -w-

“interesting”, that’s the first thing I said at the beginning of the year 2013, that’s what I said at the beginning of the semester, that’s what I said when I started my summer job. “interesting” is one of my favorite words and I say it because I know that what will happen in the future will both have its ups and downs and drawing is no exception.

this year to me, has proven to be the most fruitful year in terms of drawing because in this year, I have progressed in drawing, the story I am writing (which is found at https://phoenolf.wordpress.com/about/) and the way I think as an artist, this matters to me the most because the last couple of years, I have progressed but not as much as I have progressed this year. the best example I can think of is like when you play minecraft, the moment you start the game (especially in hardcore) you’re in a frenzy, collecting wood, finding shelter, making wheat and other survival essentials….but then you reach a point where you are officially sustainable, you have plenty of food, resources and such, you are surviving but not actually living on the edge (although that would be literal if you were “living on the edge” in the game >w<), thats how I was in terms of drawing.

but then………you have a breakthrough of an idea, in other terms, you found a jackpot of iron and redstone and from there everything changes……how you play and how you search, everything…..and thats how I was in drawing this year, when I first started drawing, I planned for the story to be a manga but then a couple of years after I started drawing I decided it to be a comic and thats when this year…..it did it again…..it morphed….evolved….becoming something far more greater then it was before…much more different, this was the year that I finally decided for the story to be a majelah (arabic version of a comic) and from there everything changed, from the storyline to the way I originally planned to draw the comic.

I certainly most intrigued by how things changed so fast…and now…as we come to the final 24 hours of 2013, I salute it and will welcome 2014 with open arms, as by the time I reach 2015, january 25, the story will be done and prepped for drawing,

for I am most certain, that 2014 will be an “INTERESTING” year



for those who doubt their artist drawing abilities

this is how I was when I first started:

rediscovered my favorite company (rooster teeth), its grown so much since I last visited it (it was like around 2005), I advise you to check it out sometime -w-

as far as for the Majelah (more in the “about me” section), not much progress, more like setbacks >_<

anyway, this is what happened to me throughout the week, so what happened to you guys this week?


hello everyone, its your friendly neighborhood artist-researcher-blogger-student, its been a while since I posted something here (and I think I know who’s the culprit here -____-…), anyway, I log into wordpress everyday to check out how are the other bloggers doing and most of them are artists. so you know they post drawings day after day after day after day…………………..at first it didn’t bother me but then at some point I was like “I created this blog to share my drawings to the world and share what I found and all I am doing is just writing what I found not showing them what I found”….so you know what, I got myyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy (hold on a sec…………………………………….ummmmmmmmmmmmm……I promise this will not take long…………………………………………AHA!!!! found it) pentel arts pocket brush pen (with two ink refills, I am gonna have to order more soon I am down to my last refill O_O) and started drawing away.

and this is the result that I got after mashing everything I knew and learned so far about drawing


ain’t that a sassy lady? -w-

so HA….just in case that you were thinking like “oh he can’t draw, all he’s doing is just posting stuff about drawing” (ok maybe you aren’t thinking that but if you are AHA!!!)

obviously the excessive amount of tests and studying is certainly getting to my head (I think I am seeing numbers flying around my head O_O)

anyway, I’ve said what I needed to say, I am off to bedd to do more drawing in the morinign so good night al

a month of revelations


you know, as we progress in our chosen field of art (like drawing, singing, dancing or writing), we learn new things, shift the way we think to accommodate our art and see things differently but not all change is good, at some point we start to lose sight of what we wanted to do in the first place, we start to go off of the course we have originally planned on, which is why I urge people to to note their progress, development and the like on anything (from notebooks to pc), this can help you by acting as a beacon to tell you if you have deviated from your original plan, and to choose a month in which you look back at all of your achievements (and failures) and see if you are truly progressing or not (my chosen month is december).

anyway, that’s all I have to say, how are you guys doing? -w-
