I had posted a couple of illustrations from this issue before so I won't post them again :)
And here is some of the work you can find in the issue..
I had included some info below (under the pictures) about shoghlana if you are interested to know more.

? What is Shoghlana
Shoghlana is the first non-profit newspaper that seeks to promote topics related to blue-collar jobs and workers in Egypt. As a newspaper Shoghlana addresses diverse topics and seeks to provide workers with information on employment, to educate them on simple workers’ rights, to give the youth insight on job profiles and express the appreciation towards the work of blue collars. Shoghlana has set its goal to inform, educate and entertain its readers at the same time
Together is this week's topic of Illustration Friday..
Now This Drawing is just a frame from a comic I did back in early 2006, it was a sort of a movie parody, a sort of a "Shall we Dance" type of a movie..anyway.. you might've noticed some slight difference in style (or not?) :)
But I thought it fits the theme :)

Back in 2011-2012 I was lucky to be a part of this wonderful group (and we still have potential work together all the time) : Ketabna
That post was one of our work together
Now this time it is art used in a short documentary about Al Mawardi and his important book mainly about ethics Kitab Aadab al-Dunya wa al-Din ..I included the clip if you want to check how it was used..
If you have any questions or feedback let me know..
I've been working on this project and this is a glimpse of the a very early character "options" ..I started with the one on the far left , kept changing till we agreed on the one on the far right :)
These are about 2 years old , they were used in a short documentary about Rifa’a al-Tahtawi and his important book “A profile of Paris” at that time (He died in Cairo in 1873)
Since I've been to Canada I get this feeling from time to time that there is a lot I haven't tried in Egypt, not necessarily exciting but still I find people's norm now is different to me :) one of the things I never tried is a ride in a Tok tok or even seeing it often enough!
These 2 editorial illustrations were done for an article about some jobs that are getting more popular ..I picked these to share..a Tok tok I never tried and an old fashion printing machine that I've seen some :)
Hope you like!
