Project Gilgamesh

I have already illustrated Ishtar, Gilgamesh, Enkidu, and Shamhat on Adobe Illustrator. I will share them when the time is right. In the next five years or less, I will turn this into a full-blown animation project. At the bare minimum, I want to publish a lavishly illustrated Epic of Gilgamesh by 2021, and not one year later. The text will be published in Neo-Aramaic (Assyrian), Arabic, Hebrew, Amharic, and possibly Farsi.

Feel free to scroll down to see some of my recent drafts!
