OLD ILLUSTRATIONS








I was looking through my old works of university that I found some of my illustrations for a children story book. I remember that I loved the story. It was about a star which someday falls from the sky, but I don't remember the details. I miss doing stuff like that. and I really miss those days of school, the smell of acrylic colors and that mood with friends. Aw how beautiful those days were...

I'm sure I will start doing it again; in a near future. I'm sure.

these are so beautiful. Children's book art is one of my favorite types of art. Somehow, they carry an emotion, and when viewed we are reminded about all these emotions in our adult years, don't you agree?

These look like they could be in a children's book that is THE book of childhood for some kids. I certainly still remember the most important books in my childhood, I used to look at them over and over again and the aesthetic is still really comforting and familiar to me. Some objects can be so essential to you that you're almost a part of them.

Those illustrations are great. Isn't it a shame how we sometimes forget about things that were so important to who we are in the past.. and wonderful how sometimes we suddenly reconnect with those things again?

They are truly gorgeous in a quirky way; yet another Shookofeh hidden talent, I'm sure my girls would approve them, will show them tomorrow and get a fed back to you :)

dear dear girl....you know what!? You keep waiting for your art life ( maybe all of your life) to begin. I see that theme in your posts quite oftern, but what you may not realize is, what maybe you don't see, but I do and I am certain your followers see (which is why we follow you) is that you are already ready. Just start. You are already there! GO!
