Craig Thompson and Islam...mmmmm...

While just checking my facts for the last post, I came across this announcement for Craig Thompson's new project 'Habibi'. It apparently aims to look at Islam in a similar way to how 'Blankets' explored Christianity, and it's also inspired by Arabic calligraphy! As a student of Arab culture words cannot express how excited I am by this, I love Craig's work in Blankets, both his innovative art and his thematic depth, and I'm pretty sure this is going to be something exciting. September 2011!
