Closing time!

  • In my design studio, most probably working like a madwoman! atย
  • On the Zankoulizer, where you can create your own avatar:
  • In my 2 comic books! (that you can find at Virgin Megastore & Librairie Antoine in Lebanon)
  • On my Facebook page and Twitter page where I’ll be updating you with all events/exhibitions/projects, etc.

It’s truly been a pleasure! ย Keep in touch and have a beautiful day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good morning Maya,
    How are you?
    I have just read your post and I still don’t know what to think. I wish you best of luck in everything you do. You deserve all the best.
    Is it “writer’s block”? Is it too much work? Is it some people’s comments? What happened?
    May I advise you to take it easy on yourself because life is too short? May I beg you not to silence the “writer-illustrator’s voice” in you?
    Have a wonderful day and best of luck in everything you do. If you ever decide to publish things again, we will be here to comment, to read, to share, to discuss…
    Take care.

    Oh no Maya!

    Here I was happy to see a new post in my google reader and then…

    You blog has given us so much laughs on dreary days and it was so much fun to follow you with your new experiences. …

    Well as Mustapha said , I do hope that you come back again. And we look forward to seeing your other work as well of course.

    Wish you all the best!

    I’m very sorry to see that you’ll be ending the blog, but it is your decision: you should only spend time on blogging if you get something out of it.

    I agree with Zeina’s comment: please don’t abandon your “writer-illustrating”, even if you do it in other places than the blog. And in case you decide to post anything on the blog we are all still subsribed ๐Ÿ™‚

    ooohh there was really some good times waiting for the illustration and keeping up to date with everydays problem in a funny way, thank you for creating this blog and good luck in your job and with the zankoulizer and everything you do my dear friend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Why do we always think that things will last forever?

    These mornings in Beirut Graphics, when I would arrive at 8.45h, always 15 minutes late, and I would open my four accounts to check them, plus your blog, plus the German euronews, plus the bag of peanuts.

    Then, at 9.30h, my art director would come and I would close everything and would pretend to work.

    Now that I do not work in a place that I loathe, suddenly my time became too precious for a peanut morning, and my schedule too unpredictable, and I forgot about the German euronews and you posted less.

    My God. Nothing remains of these mornings, really.

    When you quit your job to establish your own, I did too. I thought that I was going to retain you from these mornings โ€“ wrong answer. I am just fascinated that your blog died exactly when these mornings did, and now I will always associate the one with the other.

    I have just been hyper-dramatic, but besides that, I have also discovered that for me, you were a morning. It sounds poetic, but it also talks of a strong egoism. For us, the other is nothing other than our morning.

    My apologies, in a sense, and best wishes.

    Hold on! “End of season 1” you say? Or the absolute end?
    Afraid that the “Maya” tab in my IE favorite’s bar will have to migrate to somewhere else.
    Wish you all the luck. And hope a second season comes out.

  • Emma Wednesday, May 25, 2011   Reply →

    Nooooo! I agree with all the sentiments before, but of course you should do what feels best for you. Good luck with everything! Who knows, maybe we will walk into each other in Beirut sometime….?

    All the best from Amsterdam (NL), Emma

    I am so sad you decided to go. This is completely selfish on my part I know but you are such a good example of what a young, talented, creative and intelligent woman can do in this country… Thanks for being such a role model for my daughter Maha. God bless you and your work

    It would be a good thing to have a break, i used to do it in my old blogs as well, but i think that someone who works like you, and who have your style, should always keep on working, spreading his thoughts and sharing his opinions regarding many issues.
    You’ve got a great talent and this talent is not just for you, it is for all those who would love to get a share ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hope you will come back in a new season ๐Ÿ™‚

    I sadly kind of saw it coming to be honest, I know how hard it is to keep up with both a successful blog and a busy schedule, and you have been posting less comics and more news lately.. I really hope you find the time again for this creative outlet as we all have really enjoyed your illustrations ๐Ÿ™‚
    Best of luck Maya and hurry back ๐Ÿ˜‰
