so please read :)

i'm sorry i don't thank everybody at their page like i used to..and that i don't comment often on your work..

but i hope this will get better by time..things have been a mess and it's getting organized now..i've been really busy with some stuff and now i'm ready to share some news and may be ask for guidance too!:)

i'm moving to Canada :flagcanada: later this month..i'll be leaving on the 26th..and this is going to be a huge change in my life that i'm excited about :D

i still have no idea where or what or how i'm going to work there..or even where to look..what's the best or not..and stuff like that.. i'm still clueless and worried financially but i think it will be ok.. i can wash dishes after all hehehe!

if anyone here have any advice work(and life) in canada..and where i might look for a job that have something to do with drawing i'd be so grateful!:D

probably i'm going to be living in vancouver BC or toronto ON ..but i'll go to my wife at NB first..and i'll stay there to finish some papers and make some visits for a couple of months then we're moving after!..i'm thinking toronto ..hmmm..

right now i'm working a lot to collect some funds before i leave..and spending time with family and friends..god knows when i'm going to see them again and that i really will miss them so much..

i'll make another journal before i leave..i just wanted to share my news and if you have any advice i'll be thankful ..

    انا اكتر واحد هتاثر بغيابك
    يمكن انا شوفتك و اعدت معاك مرات قليلة جدا
    بس صدقني كنت اخويا الكبير فعلا
    و انت استاذ كبير جدا
    مصر خسرتك
    واحنا خسرناك
    و يانيال كندا بيك
    ياعم تغسل صحون اية بس
    انت طالع من البلد دي كبير قوي
    و كندا انت هتكبر اكتر و اكتر هناك
    و هترجع مصر ف يوم هتلاقي اللي فينا فاتح كشك و اللي بيسرح باقلام زيبرا
    واللي اجنن
    و انت اخترت الطريق الصح
    و اتمنى من ربنا انة يكرمك هناك جدا و يسعدك مع زوجتك
    وتجيبولنا حاتاتيم صغننين
    يملو علينا المجلات
    و تبقى هناك كمان نجم نجوم كندا الاول
    و خليك واثق من انك هتقلب الدنيا هناك
    وبكرة تقول
    اسمة اية
    اسمة اية الطويل دة اللي رسمة وحش قوي
    يروح رادد عليك و احد
    hisham rahmah
    اة هشام رحمة قالهالي

  6. It's been a while since my last visit to your blog, man you still dazzle me with your great work.

    Speaking of the Canada thing, I really wish you the best although I think it's a loss to Egypt :(
    I suppose you're there by now !

    Vancouver is awesome, I've stayed there for a year and a half while studying 3D Animation & Visual Effects, but I wasn't planning on staying because mama kanet 3amla-li morostan fe el telephone :))

    anyways, I don't know about the chances of working as a cartoonist there. but there's a great deal of chances for working as concept artist or character designer or story boarder for Animation & Gaming companies. Vancouver is a big hub for these type of companies, it's full of them and the number is increasing everyday. Vancouver is known as "Hollywood north" for the amount of production being created there. I would defiently suggest vancouver for your workfield. you can start searching websites such as http://www.creativeheads.net/ for work there. you can also go to www.awn.com and get the contacts of all the animation/gaming companies in Vancouver, and send you portfolio to all of them while finishing your papers in NB.

    we ba3deen vancouver el-gaw fiha gamed keeeeeeeeeeeeeeek.. kefaya en mafihash talg khales aslan ! el talg dah khara.. howa sa7ee7 7elw lel-le3b bas mesh 3amaly khales.

    yalla rabena yewafa22ak ya man fe ay 7aga 7atekhtarha we beggad el balad di khesretak !
