Day 10: ARABIAN . . . This prompt was difficult…at first. Yesterday I sat with the ipad and asked myself, what is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of the word Arabian? Well thanks to years of conditioning all I could think of was Arabian Nights (and a few others revolving around food…Shawarma and Al Faham!!!!!!!!!). I decided to go down that lane in my head, shuffling through various memories related to me watching Aladdin at 6PM every evening while eating Maggi. That is when this long forgotten memory came up. When I was a kid, someone gifted me a bunch of pop-up books. I had never seen anything like that. You open a page, and with each page opens up a world of characters and buildings 'popping' out of the page. Making the story so much more exciting. One of those books happened to be Arabian Nights. The original story (not the Disney version). . . . Now as a kid, I loved reading. I would have a book with me wherever I went. Reading at night, after parents put me to bed had a whole different excitement to it. Of course I was supposed to sleep, but I guess every book lover has this one memory of going under the blanket with a book and a torch to read into the night. One of my first memories of reading under the blanket is with this Arabian Nights pop-up book. Now back in the day I did not have a torch. This was early 90s, so of course mobile phones were not there. However, I had a battery operated toy car. This car had headlights that could provide enough light for me to read the book. This illustration is a representation of that very memory. Me hiding under the blanket with the toy car and the Arabian Nights pop-up book.

Artist comes in great diversity like their work. Many artists have and are still ingeniously continuing to bestow their talents across various social media platforms. Indeed, artists are even not seen for their potential. And for the few newcomers, it becomes challenging and less creative.
