I’ve been experimenting quite a bit lately with Arabic Calligraphy into this somewhat modern form. This is what I have to show after a lot of trial and error. I struggled a bit to integrate english into the design, but to no avail, since integrating it was essentially an afterthought, it was never meant to be. This is the lead in though to a series of Arabic Calligraphy based pieces that I plan on doing in the near future. Taking famous Egyptian Folk sayings and literally translating them into english, Beautiful Arabic calligraphy side by side with Western Typography. I’m looking forward to it. Comments and Critiques welcome!

The Arabic above reads : ~ Peace be upon you with the Mercy of Allah and his Blessings ~
