So according to a quick run through my WordPress stats I have 66 living and breathing beings following my blog.
I wish to thank you all for your interest in my words and false wisdom.
It has been a while since I posted anything worthwhile. In the past two years I took an oath not to partake in any political discourse or social critique.
Why? I am too busy drawing lines and chasing after my livelihood.
There are many things in life that you cannot shake off: You being a writer and a radio person.
It has been a good year – minus the French scenery in France and Marion Cotillard – if you know your cinema you will get the reference.
However, I am blessed with a woman who is as lovely as Marion. I don’t talk much about my personal life as I try to let my work talk about myself as much as I can.
So yes it has been a good year. I am now a news reader and editor at Bliss 104.3, where I find myself surrounded by creative decent people. I’ve been working on expanding my art studio F.A.D.A. 317 and a couple of other projects.
I also haven’t stopped doing graffiti. There is something liberating about spraying your lines on a wall in Amman – it cuts the middleman and places your work for observation by thousands of people.
Following an artistic cultural trip to the U.K., compliments of the British Council, I started a blog dedicated to graffiti.
I called it Spray Rocket Ape: Graffiti JO + and even designed the banner – since my side career is now all about illustration.
I have a thing for apes;-})
Anyway … time for me to get back to designing album art for a client.
So here is the link to Spray Rocket Ape and I hope I can get to blog a little more.
Stay sound and sane …
