Why culture, why!?

Why Culture Mona Abi Warde-01

Here comes my second handmade poster.

That one was for a competition. we had to present a poster answering the question “why culture matters?”. (لماذا الثقافة؟)

My answer was “…لانّو حتّى الولد مخّو بلد”

(for my non lebanese friends, it’s something like “because a child’s head is a country” which comes from an expression here “his head is a country” (مخّو بلد) to say that someone has a great brain, full of informations)

Anyway, the poster didn’t even pass the first selection (if you’re interested have a look on what was selected, and maybe vote for someone) but who cares, I’m proud of what I did and enjoyed making every part of it. 🙂

Still, learning some lessons from that won’t harm:

1- next time listen to the person who tells you “never participate in competitions, it’s never worth it” 😉

2- take more making of pictures, you always regret not taking step by step pics after finishing your work!

3- start looking for serious projects! yalla wlo!

And a conclusion:

chaklo bass el walad mokho balad 😛

Cheers,

Hey people! I would like you to meet my first handmade poster.

Either we say I did this for a competition or I just woke up one day and decided to make a burger and shoot it with a curious man floating next to it, and then I just put random numbers in the bottom of my artwork.

What do you know?! I’m an artist! 😛 Let’s not ask questions, let’s just pretend this is what it is and leave it at that. 😉

hope you like it 🙂

 

P.S: thanks to Walid Saliba for the pictures 🙂 and Rachad Mhawej for reminding me about physic and gravity laws 😛

I might post some making of pictures soon.

!كلّو مدروز

I wanted to try making this pencil pouch since I saw it on Pinterest but needed to give it

something that was mine,

hmm… maybe a funny joke? (again, when I say funny I mean for me :P)

!كلّو مدروز (kello madrouz)

I hate explaining jokes, they are lame enough without explanation 😉 but for my non-Lebanese

friends who are wondering what I’m talking about, here it goes:

“kello madrouz” means “it’s all sewn” while “kello madrouss” means literally “it’s all studied”

which is an expression to say something like “everything is under control”. Hahaha?

whatever… happy birthday roriiii 🙂
