|fade away & illustrate launch invitation . 2015|
after hosting a series of zine workshops over the last couple of years, i've been inspired to publish a self-initiated illustration zine titled 'fade away & illustrate'. it was a challenging process, but i'm glad to say that the zines are finally fresh off the press and ready to be shared to the world.
'fade away & illustrate' is an attempt at gathering some of the best illustrators around town and sharing their work to the masses. each issue, a group of illustrators are asked to respond to a theme, the first issue being 'introductions'. and what better way then to introduce these talented artists but through their awesome drawings.
there will be an official zine launch, hosted by the lovely organizers of the design house, during sikka art fair. make sure to come on thursday, 19 march 2015 to house no. 28 at al fahidi historical neighbourhood, from 7.30 pm onwards to get your copy of the zine and meet some of the awesome illustrators included in the zine. zines will be on sale at the launch, and during the duration of the fair (14-24 march) for aed 30.
a few thanks are in order – firstly, to all the contributors; issue one wouldn't have been possible without you. also, a big thanks goes to kamal and the magazine shop, for generously hosting me in their space to offer workshops, and their support towards the zine. lastly, a big thank you to the design house, for taking me back this year as a minor contributor, and hosting the launch. special thanks goes to tulip; for being my eyes when i carelessly don't pay attention to minor details.
look forward to seeing you all at the launch.
ps – the title 'fade away & illustrate' is inspired by blondie (one of my favorite bands in existence) and their song 'fade away & radiate'. have a listen when you have the chance...
