A Summer Treat: Two Pizzas from Two Cultures
Here are two patteren-filled illustrations for my blog series: Illustrated Middle Eastern Recipes + Illustrated Italian Recipes. One Pizza is from Italy and has a simple filo crust, while the other is a Turkish flatbread called Lahmacun in Turkey, and Sfeeha in Lebanon, and comes with a traditional pizza dough. Relax and enjoy the taste of summer in these easy and flavourful recipes:

Italy Culinary Tour: Illustrated Map of Puglia

If you're planning a trip to Puglia this summer, then you must read this post for tips on where to stay and places to go. This beautiful region with its centuries-old farmland and long Mediterranean coastline, is truly extraordinary! Puglia, down in the heel of Italy, was certainly the highlight of our recent Italy Culinary Tour!

'Illustrated Middle Eastern Recipes' Cover Gets a New Look

You know, I created my blog to experiment with illustration ideas and to develop my food and travel illustration style. I consider everything on the blog to be 'work in progress.' That's why, every once in a while I go back and tweak some of the illustrations to better reflect where I am at in my illustration journey. The cover for this illustrated blog series has gone through quite a transformation. You can see the earlier versions below! Which one do you like best?

Illustrated Map of Jordan: The Melting Pot of Heritage, Hospitality, and Biodiversity

A few weeks ago, I created the illustrated map of Jordan in the post to celebrate the unique flavours of this small and beautiful country, nestling peacefully east of the Mediterranean Sea. Jordan is unlike any Middle Eastern country I have ever been to. It is home to five UNESCO World Heritage Sites (including the red-rose city of Petra, and the newly-admitted Baptism Site), in addition to Roman archaeological ruins like Jerash in the north, and several biodiversity and nature reserves.

NEW FLICKR INSPIRATION

Haven't you heard? Last month, Verizon bought Yahoo. Soon after, Flickr (a Yahoo-owned photo-sharing platform) changed the look and feel of their users' About page. They also seem to be planning a major overhaul of the site. I'm personally very excited about this news and want to be there when Flickr finally makes a comeback! Meanwhile, check out these two recent photos from my Flickr feed, and don't forget to follow if you're on Flickr!
