It's almost 3 AM, I have to leave for work in less than 5 hours. I have an exam on Tuesday, which I have barely studied. And here I am on my computer working without any breaks...or regrets. I guess that's blessing  of doing what you love and getting lost in it.  I hope someday my risq can involve creativity. I would probably become a work-a-holic when that day arrives. One of these days, (nights)  I'll write about my "day job."

Until then, I'm gonna mess around in DW.

Poetic Vision Tour Album Cover

My first album design.

 I completed this in exactly one night to meet the deadline of my client.  Yes, I'm a  glorious-last-minute-warrior.  I had so much fun making this-combining traditional and digital media-a perfect marriage. I hope to continue making albums for PVT!  Alhamdullilah.

I was looking at my bookshelf,  and I found a clear plastic folder filled with old Urdu and English newspapers-some dating back from 1986 (I'll save this for another post) and this one from post 911. I had no clear reason to save them other than me telling myself I will use these pages in the future.  Nine years later, I decided to make a self-portait. I remember exactly where I was, what I was doing, when I heard the news.  Like many Americans, we too were distraught, fearful...

This is a meaningful piece to me as it might be to you.  God Bless.
