From the Eyes of a Cartoonist

Carlos Latuff is a freelance political cartoonist, born in November 30, 1968, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I stumbled on some of his cartoons while browsing Deviant Art & thought of sharing. His work though funny is sadly so true.

Creativity at it's Best!

Introducing two of the most creative people I know, Hasan Jaber & Zahia Farhat. I'm happy to call them my friends, I even blackmailed them into letting me post some of their work for the rest of cyberspace to see.

Hasan Jaber Photography

SUMMER FUN! Hass practically lives on the beach. And though I make fun of him all the time about it, he's snapped the greatest of images.

This one I imagine to be a more personal shot for him. Here's what he said about it: "Like many others the girl fled with her family to Mountain Lebanon after Israeli shelling and air-strikes targeted their village in Southern Lebanon, July 2006. Also like many others, they returned on the 14th of August 2006 after cessation of fire agreement declared by the United Nations Security Council. You would not imagine the sounds of war these children had to hearand the fear they had to live within. But after all they smile and much better than those living a normal life."


Zahia Farhat's Artwork

I find her work very diverse & I just love it. Tipping my hat to you girl!

Entitled: Yes, it's Spring. This is Za pitter pattering her way through university.

Schizophrenia: She let me in on the secret of how she managed this shot, nope not telling!

Friendly message: FUCK YOU!

Last but not least, this is Revolutionary Spirit. Here's what she had to say about it:
"Kafiya is the symbol of the Palestinian Intifada. When people wear it, it means that either they are Arabs and are showing their backgrounds or they support the Palestinian cause."
