Busy...Mjghula...That’s how you say it in Moroccan Arabic and that’s what I’ve been since my last blog post, oh so long ago! Many have asked what creative projects I’ve been working on. Since I’m still in the preparation stage for opening my studio here in Morocco, I’ve been spending a lot of time studying Arabic. One of the great things about being able to draw is that I can create my own pictures to help me memorize new words. It’s so much better to learn them in association with the actual thing or a picture of it, rather than in association with the English word.
You can see two sheets of my vocab images HERE, and try to guess meanings of the pictures.
It’s a good exercise for me as well in sketching more quickly and not getting bogged down with detail and perfectionism!
