I was commissioned by the British Council in Jerusalem to create a set of characters for the Tajaawob project.  This is a draft of the characters, who are based on some of my friends in Palestine. To create them, I sketched them (and many more) from facebook pictures and then used Adobe Illustrator to digitalize them. Naturally, I could have worked on them for much longer — “Art is never finished, simply abandoned”– but this was the final version.

I was commissioned by Oxfam to create a olive tree for their outreach campaign about the olive industry.
