I'm very much alive but it looks like I'm over deviantART. I'm not leaving as such, but I have no motivation to post work here anymore. I'm just getting too old for this site. The calligraphy art I am now fully focused on doesn't belong here.
If you're into that work, I would love to see more of you on Patreon
and get some more artist engagement there. I post the finished pieces in public, so you can follow me there for free, although starting from $2 you get to see early sketches, thought processes, and other insights I just don't post anywhere else, among other perks.
I actually spent a whole day hanging out at Patreon headquarters this week, a beautiful space filled with beautiful bright people who genuinely want feedback and ideas, so it's more than just another platform to me now.
Otherwise, that work gets posted on Majnouna.com
which now also has a blog for announcements.Cedarseed.com
is for what are now hobbies: my illustration, photography etc.
The recipes have their dedicated blog: Joumana's Cookbook
Finally, for something completely different: For Love of the Earth
See you around the webs!
PS: Did you know birds actually sing all night? I'm jetlagged AF and made this random discovery
