Ramadan Mubarak[ Photography | Digital Art | Poetry | Prose | blog | LinkedIn ]
Wishing you all a blessed Ramadan and more importantly, happiness and content with who you are.
For the uninitiated, you can learn about Ramadan over many places, but moryarti summarizes eloquently here (and on a humourous note,here). If you wanna start learning how to cook, no better
Showcasing My Work at Geekfest 5.0 Dubai[ Photography | Digital Art | Poetry | Prose | blog | LinkedIn ]
A couple or so weeks ago, I was invited by Alexander McNabb to showcase some of my photography at Geekfest 5.0, a social networking event that takes pride in it being unorganized in the traditional sense of the term. Unlike my usual self, I took this opportunity as a challenge to myself by telling Alex I would be showcasing never-seen-before photos that I have taken. I had one week to prepare 10 photos.
Honoring The 38th UAE National Day[ Photography | Digital Art | Poetry | Prose | blog | LinkedIn ]
The UAE has been the media spotlight – both positive (Abu Dhabi F1) and negative (Dubai World hiatus) – heralding a new era of Dubai Bashing (see my thorough how-to here) as well as justified criticism and the typical market flux a la Pelham 123 (so who made $300m now?).
Yesterday was the 38th UAE National Day, and these special occasions, like Eid and Thanksgiving and Christmas, are here to remind us of the greater good that we keep tucked in the shadows.

ByeByeDuBye[ Photography | Digital Art | Poetry | Prose | blog | LinkedIn ]
I didn’t put in the "du" reference on purpose but it does sound funny LOL!
I got my visa, finally, and I am a student again! My classes will start first of Ramadan, so I decided that since I’m not getting richer by being unemployed I might as well go see my family now since I can afford it!
So in a few hours I will be eating koosa and I will be hearing granny’s story on how I got tied to the chair leg when I was a toddler so I don’t go hug
Fruits Must Be Destroyed NOW![ Photography | Digital Art | Poetry | Prose | blog | LinkedIn ]
Who of you hate fruits, say aye!
Or is it I?
Regardless, hideous fruits must be abolished from human consumption. Yes, I know, fruits are all the rage these days - vitamin source and those environmental and Go Green imbeciles and Healthy Lifestyle crap nutritionists can’t tell you enough on the importance of fruits.
go-green + fruits = lies! all lies! (hint: it’s a PIE chart!)
Though surprisingly they ask you NOT to eat fruits if you’re on some sort of d
I MUST HAS CARBZ NOW![ Photography | Digital Art | Poetry | Prose | blog | LinkedIn ]
Ive been on this ridiculous diet for weight gain, rather muscle gain. See, since my biological makeup is impossible to deal with - I got what I asked for. I gained fat. As in FAT, not muscle. And my makeup dictates that the fat be in the belly exclusively.
Which is OK, I mean I am a guy and I dont have body dysmorphic disorder and I am in very good shape knock wood.
I feel BLOATED.
I cant breathe or anything. This new expanded orbit is a bit new to me. So I said I might cut on the carbs a bit and increase the protein intake. It was good

How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio
PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
(The colours labelled as 'primary' are the primary colours in the RGB colour model. Primary colours of the CMYK colour model are cyan, magenta and yellow.)

Vanguard, Chapter 1: DuncanDuncan's Journal: Day 1288
I consider myself a good man. I respect women, elders, my equals, and the dead. I say a morning prayer, and an evening one. Hell, I even thank the gods for a meal, instead of immediately chowing down in the voracious manner as the other soldiers here do. By all logical means, I should be in paradise. No really, not just because I'm a good man, but also because I should be dead by now. So I ask myself: why, oh gods up there, have I ended up in hell?
1288 days. 1288 days of my life have been spent in this misery, and I'm beginning to lose faith in the glory I was promised. Some of the rookies still live in their ignorant bliss, but I've lived long enough to realize that there's not much glory to find here. “Sing the songs of glory and march into battle—-join The Crusade today!”. Such were the words of the posters The Crusade has spread all over The Mortal Realm. Gullible fools practically stand in line for these songs of glory that th
