My name is Hatem.. I am an illustrator of many stories..cartoonist of various adventures..contributor to lots of interesting projects..and a part time cookie monster in the tea department.
I studied fine arts, illustration and basic animation and graduated with a BA degree in 2000 from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo, Egypt. years later I moved to Canada and here I am. I live in a beautiful place with my wife, my son and pets that out number people in the same house and they are a lot of inspiration.
My work includes making picture books, comics, mascots, storyboards, character design and all sorts of visual design and storytelling for publishers, advertising agencies, animation studios, games studios, multimedia offices and worked with a wide range of clients worldwide.
My work was featured in 2 episodes of BBC cbeebies TV series "Driver Dan's Story Train" which broadcast worldwide currently. Also a book I illustrated -Taksheera or "Frown"- was shortlisted for Etisalat award for the Best Children's Book (2013) in the UAE.
My work is inspired by almost everything in life and the sense of wonder, curiosity and experiencing . My interests are very abstract but I enjoy people, listening to audiobooks while working, varied forms of music, books, humanities, people, psychology, enneagram, MBTI, walking, talking, stories, the news, movies, documentaries, my family, my friends, and I appreciate good humor and wit . I am very subjective and consider every person as the protagonist of their life story.
