I hope you all had good Easter holidays :easteregg: – I spent them on a farm in Devon, with horses, sheep, chickens... the works!

I'm teaching calligraphy, and you can see/hear me talk about the course in this nice interview that also shows glimpses of my class.

I also opened a Society6 shop!
That's all for now, back to being busy :)

"One of the fundamental conditions of happiness is to know that everything that one does has a meaning in eternity" - Titus Burckhardt

I have a BA in graphic design and my body of work encompasses illustration, comics, tutorials, digital games and children's books, but above all I am now a calligraphy artist based in London. I learned the essence of the ancient Kufi script from master calligrapher Samir Sayegh, in Beirut, through years of close collaboration. With him I learned to breathe new life into a traditional art, not merely copying or reviving its old forms but finding a contemporary language for it. The resulting calligraphic mandalas evoke the magic that comes through when form and meaning are one.
Drop by my website, Majnouna.com, for a better view at my work, or click for my resume.

While the cookbook makes its slow progress, what kind of recipes would you like to see posted?

The fact your tutorials exist inspires me. Artwork is so clear in your mind, and charity so strong in your heart. Thank you for penning down your long years of practice and toil for dA to learn from!
