    Default Al-Masjid al-Haram Map-commission

    Here is a finished Hajj-Certificate for Pilgrims of the Al-Masjid al-Haram. Its a Collaborative Work with an islamic Caligraphy Artist, an Illuminator (Islamic Patternmaker) and me. Basicly my work is everything beside the original of the Patterns in the Middle and the Caligraphy. It was commissioned by InspiralDesign, a London-base Design-Agency. Its my 3rd Job for them and I am learning everytime new ways of illustrating historical Maps and Images, within their complex commissions.

    I welcome feedback and comments.

    It's a beautiful piece, SK! Are the other two commissions available for viewing somewhere as well?

    Thank you all for the kind words. I will photograph the book (other commission) as soon as I am back home.
