ما هى شغلانة؟
شغلانة هى أول صحيفة غير هادفة للربح، تسعى لتعزيز و مناقشة المواضيع المتعلقة بالوظائف الفنية و المهنية في مصر. كما تناول شغلانة مواضيع متنوعة و تسعى لتزويد العمال بمعلومات عن فرص العمل و تثقيفهم بشأن حقوقهم، و تقديم للشباب فكرة عن الوظائف الفنية و المهنية و الإعراب عن التقدير لتلك الوظائف. و قد وضعت شغلانة هدفها في إعلام وتثقيف وترفيه قرائها في نفس الوقت.
? 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
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..
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)
so these guys, Tayoob and Tayooch are going to be show every once in a while since I do a comic about them every week in Majid Magazine, here is a sneak peak ..I will be posting other stuff and going back to them.
If you happen to be in Renfrewshire, UK with your pets and looking for a professional Dog walking\ pet boarding service- among other services- you might , in your search, see a van with my illustration on it. That is when you know you have found it : RENFREWSHIRE PET SERVICES , consider their service and tell people how great the van looks :D
