5 Comics on DA That Manage To Do Things RIGHT
Wurr by Paperiapina
Linkage: http://wolfpearl.deviantart.com/art/Wurr-page-1-60747954
The skinny: Horribly deformed, heroic hellhounds seek out a new home in a land forbidden to their kind.
Why It Doesn't Suck: First off, the whole premise brilliantly takes the Beauty Equals Goodness trope and completely turns it on its head.  Aside from that, it just about subverts every wolf comic trope there is.  Sleek, beautiful, romantic icons these guys ain't.  There is no prophecy, no aesop about man being evil, and probably above all, no romanticizing what it means to be a hunter.  The pack has almost no petty squabbling, puts up with each other's foibles, and has to because they know the alternative is death.  No angst, no whining or existential crises, just shutting up and putting up with each other because it means living another day.  Considering most wolf comics take the opportunity to put whiny teen

dA setting, Patreon rising

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 11, 2017, 3:54 AM


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 :|

"One of the fundamental conditions of happiness is to know that everything that one does has a meaning in eternity" - Titus Burckhardt

I trained in graphic design and my body of work encompasses illustration, comics, tutorials, digital games and children's books. I was apprenticed to a master calligrapher for several years and I am now settled in London, UK, where I am dedicated full-time to my own calligraphy, going deeper into the potential of the ancient art of the Kufic script, which I also teach, while pursuing illustration for my own pleasure. I'm also an avid cook and baker, and all-time animal lover, with a passion for ethnography and a history of globetrotting.

You'll find my work on my dual website, Majnouna (calligraphy) / Cedarseed (everything else). My CV is here.
