Singh n Khan
Singh n Khan is a South Asian themed dark comedy comic strip. The main characters are Raj (Rajendra Singh, right) and Zafar (Zafaruddin Khan, left) who are best friends since forever. There are endless stories of them bantering together over their cultural differences but at the end of the day, they are still the best of friends. This comic strip challenges the stereotypes surrounding the various cultures of South Asia. The strip also deals with offensive remarks against South Asians and turns these into a light-hearted depiction. Friendly reminder that this comic strip has no intolerance of anti-religion concept.

How to Tell if You're a Writer

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 27, 2014, 3:04 PM

-If you talk to yourself.

-If you talk to yourself about talking to yourself (i.e. ‘I wonder why I talk to myself so much?’).

-If, when you talk to yourself, you sometimes speak as if talking to another person (i.e. ‘Okay, so have you ever noticed that the word ‘deliver’ could mean removing someone’s liver?’)

-If, after uttering a profound piece of wisdom like that above, you stare at the cookie in your hand in awe and say, ‘Wow, this is good stuff for sugar highs!’

-If you live off of sugar and caffeine.

-If people start to notice that you tend to check your e-mail every day for a week, then suddenly disappear off the face of the planet.

-If your e-mails tend to be pages long and incredibly random.

-If, when replying to someone else’s e-mail, you are sometimes so random that you fail to address the original message altogether.

-If, no matter where you are in your room, you never have to so much as get up to reach a pen/pencil and paper.-If the letters are starting to wear off on the keys of your keyboard.

-If people think you might have A.D.D.

-If you think it’d be cool to have A.D.D.

-If you start constantly talking in third person, past tense.

-If you think about making lists like this, and start giggling for no ‘apparent’ reason.

-If your friends don’t even bother to look funny at you anymore when you start giggling for no apparent reason.

-And finally, the number one way to tell if you’re a good writer: If you worship English 101.

Arsalan Khan
Artist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
Hey there, welcome to my world!

I am Arsalan, Mohahammed Arsalan Khan but people knows me as Azad or Dizney Khan. I am 24 years old and sort of rebellious man who doesn’t like to being told to do to please anyone, though some people seen me as too kind person when I am not. I am studying BA Film at University this moment, I am enjoying it. I love learning history & cultures, watching movies & TV series, reading books, writing stories and lots of things. I never likes sports stuff though I into swimming, gym and baseball though I do it very rarely (or never), I am not very sport person. My artist name is Arsalan Khan Artist (former DizneyKhan) and I am a cartoonist/animator/director/storyteller. I have been interested in animation since I was very young when I was inspired by Walt Disney, one of few original animators who brought stop motion into reality. I dreamt of making animation movies with morals, using the best quality of animating style and creating live-action movies based on reality or historic events. It is a passion of mine and I want to become a professional animator or director.
If anyone have wondering about my background, I was born in Northern England though I am not actually white ethnicity. My parents originally came from Azad Kashmir, Pakistan (former Jammu Kashmir), we speaks Pahari language, known as Pothohari, Mirpuri, Hindko and Punchi, sort of similar to Punjabi Language with some Pashto, Farsi and Dardic words. I am Turkish-Persian descent, perhaps mixed with other blood such as Rajput, Afghani and Greek. I am a Muslim, however I am not perfect one. We all have makes mistakes, we all do repent it, we all learn from it and sometimes repeating same mistakes, which makes us humans. End of the day Allah loves all of us!

P.S. Sorry for my poor grammar. :(

I fail to see what… has to do with anti-feminism. Could you please explain?
ArsalanKhanArtist Featured By Owner May 28, 2016   Digital Artist
The storyline of Prince Ghaffar (Father) is metaphor for fathers who are fighting for the love of their children, and it is in association with Men’s Rights and Father’s Rights. The Princess Maariyah storyline is all about female empowerment, women’s rights and education. Anti-feminism makes her that she cares for human's rights and equal, not supporting girls only. :)
lordmep Featured By Owner May 28, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Wish that were more clear, but thank you.
ChaosEmpress Featured By Owner Edited Jan 21, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What do you suggest as references for outfits for your Princess Maariyah? I tried to look up to see what else she would have worn just out of curiosity, but I came up with mostly land and modern people. Do you ever plan on drawing her a prince or is she independent?
ArsalanKhanArtist Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2016   Digital Artist
Her official causal princess look: arsalankhanartist.deviantart.c…
It's mix of Mughal clothes that wore by muslim princesses in Northern areas of South Asia but with disney twist. 

The story, it's complicated, fantasy fairy-tale story that centres on a father-daughter bond. The two protagonists are Prince Ghaffar (father) and Princess Maariyah (daughter), alongside an antagonist, Zanubiya the Immoral Jinn (aka Genie). The novel is called ‘Curse’ and it has been heavily influenced by Abrahamic world and South Asian customs and superstitions, along with Victorian customs. The main scenario is a metaphor for giving birth to a female baby and the associated consequences this brings.

About her prince, yes she have a prince but romance is not main theme, it's father-daughter.

I have more pictures of characters like Princess's father (also 
protagonist), her older brother, her prince etc. I will upload them once I finish whole secondary characters. 
ChaosEmpress Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I see.

Well I like that! I'm glad it's not a romance story and instead a father-daughter relationship. This story sounds soooo interesting! I hope you'll have a story out for people to read! I know the curses to having a daughter. They can make a five minute walk seem like a ten hour walk, because they won't stop talking. XD Joking aside this already has me at the edge of my seat with curiosity and you only have given me a brief description of the story.

Can't wait to see them!
