A few days ago I read "Habibi" by Craig Thompson...

I have no suitable words for this book... it trapped me within the first pages and kept me marveling, staggered and somehow bitter-sweet suffering through 4 or 5 hours of constantly reading - couldn't stop it.

Inspired me to do this drawing.

I have so much to learn...
