100 Day Art Challenge

Another elongated week. I should have completed week 3 a few days ago. But non-the-less I’ve finally done it, without missing a single day. Keeping your word and committing to something on a daily bases can be quite the challenge. However, on the plus side I’m exploring new patterns everyday. I look at daily objects…

Keep Calm and Get Pining

I came across a Facebook post on how reaching a million views on Pinterest a month. my first thought was I wish I could say that, (right after thinking wow). I looked at my own Pinterest with less 10 images, I’m well away from even getting  triple digits. I, therefore spent all of today in…

Day At

So I spent a good hour at the British Museum shop, browsing the latest collection of stationary and books. I’ve visited the Museum many times and on many occasions I’ve breezed through, only to spend a good part of the visit at the shop. Why the shop? I hear you ask. Here, I find a…

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

I was searching for round objects to create using Mandala art. I came up with a few simple items such as football, basketball, cup lid and so on. However, they didn’t seem challenging enough for me so I continued to dig deeper. It wasn’t until I saw a close up painting of an eye in…

100 Day Art Challenge

I started of good, but this week I have a fallen back on a few days which I will make up for. Props to those who do not miss a day, as this challenge is quite a commitment and can be rather, well, urm challenging. Here’s to another (elongated) week.

Hello Colour

When I’m not looking for ideas, I’m browsing the internet for interesting colour palettes. Here, I wanted to share colourful images I recently came across on my favourite free, photo stock website, Unsplash. Being a total Pantone and dulux fan I could spend hours staring at colour and creating my very own colour-blocks. Now, what’s…

100 Day Art Challenge

No introductions needed, the title says it all. It’s been a week since I started this challenge and so far, so good. I’ve stayed true to my word and have dedicated sometime each day to this challenge. To help me stay committed, I have been updating my Instagram everyday. So far I’ve kept the artwork…

The Faraway Devotee

The most awaited time of the year for Muslim’s is finally here. It’s that time when Muslim’s cross the lands and seas to perform Hajj; a once in a lifetime religious obligatory for all Muslims. While thousands of lucky people are performing Hajj this year, I’m using this day as an inspiration for my art….

Little black Diary

Back on the road. This time not looking for inspiration in obvious places. I know it may look like I spend all my time in Shoreditch (which, I wish I did), but apart from my creative cravings, shoreditch also treats my sweet tooth. There’s a little cake shop sitting sweetly in the corner of Spitalfields…
