Teta alit

Part of my OCAD U graduation exhibit #106 serving as my 2021 undergraduate illustration thesis. 
Teta Alit visually translates phrases from the Arabic/Lebanese language into literal scenarios to bring humour, lighthearted connection, and understanding between diverse backgrounds. This series will play with language and show how beautiful, poetic, and funny the Arabic language is. 
The title in english means, "My Grandmother Said". "Teta" is My Grandmother in Lebanese, and the word "Alit" can be translated to Said.
I made a post is made on Tumblr explaining what each saying means if anyone is interested!
