I worked on this series for an art contest at my university a few months ago.

The contest was about Lebanese Heritage, we had to illustrate 4 different posters about Lebanese traditions, sayings and food.

The first image is about a lebanese saying, when translated to English it means "Drowned in a thimble" which means giving up too easily for the littlest things.

The second is Baba Ghannouj, a middle-eastern platter that's basically made of eggplants. The term "Baba Ghannouj" means "Coy Daddy" in Arabic.

The third is a lebanese saying, That's when translated to english, it means "Bury my Heart" It's a very kind and sweet thing to say to the people you love, in here.

And the last is also about a lebanese saying that somehow means "I hope you see nothing but great health". But here in Lebanon we have a water brand called Soha. and Soha means health. So I used a big great bottle of water to illustrate health in a silly way.

The illustrations were painted digitally using ProCreate on iPad. It was my first try with digital art.
I won the second prize :dance:

Thanks a lot for looking!
