#001 — Yo

My name is Asad. It means "lion" in Arabic, and it's pronounced uh-SUHD (like "a sud" of soap). Yes, I said soap. I’m an artist who loves to create and satisfy my curiosity of art and adventure.

I’m beginning this blog to share my creative journey, artwork, and thoughts on topics important to me like culture, design, and music. Along the way, I intend to expand my imagination, develop my artistic vision, and meet other artists on a similar journey. It’s a virtual manifestation of Rafiki’s baobab tree from The Lion King; a cozy haven and a place for growth.
