This video shows you how I create my comic strip from start to finish!
This video shows how a continuous line drawing can be more than an exercise. Just add some watercolor and you have a project that can go on the wall!
A friend of mine sent me a bunch of photos from the fall of 2010. As I looked at them with my 2017 eyes I was amazed at how good-looking I was. Currently, when I look in the mirror, I see thinning hair, dark circles under my eyes and crow’s feet jutting out from their sides, hair coming out from my ears and nose, and a forehead lined with frustration.
I never thought of myself as good-looking. As a youth, I was teased and taunted for my Middle-Eastern nose, hair, and skin tone. This seed was planted long ago and its roots have grown deeper than you or I can know. When a kind person pulled the weed, the roots would break like a wishbone on Thanksgiving. I was always left with the short end of the bone, thus my wish of feeling handsome never came true. Many times, I tried to kill the weed and its roots with chemicals but they only left my head hurting in the morning. How do I kill this weed from the roots?
But after writing this I can see more clearly, that there is much to appreciate in me presently. My story is something to honor, to cherish, to speak of. My story is handsome and that is all I need to know.
This will by my final political satire piece for some time because I’m just getting sick and tired of the Trump administration. I feel that this cartoon represents my feelings on what President Trump is doing to the United States. I will transfer my focus other comic strips: The Adventures of a Wheel Woman, To Be Continuous, and American Behzad. The latter comic will be a graphic novel which I’m producing with another artist and the first two will be a regular comic strip on baldspotstudios.com. I hope you follow my future comic strips which I’m sure you all will enjoy 🙂
Here is a comic depicting the relationship between Palestine and her neighbors. As Israel is gobbling up increasingly land in the occupied territories, Jordan and Egypt are not only friendly with Israel but also unfriendly with Palestinian refugees. The two-state solution is dead. There is only one state, the state of dominance and terror.
