“Greener” paper cup with no plastic cover!

I found this article on Fastcodesign.com about a new disposable paper cup without a plastic lid, which makes it a bit “greener”.

This cup is designed by Peter Herman, who partnered with Daren Bascome, of graphic-design firm Proverb, to form Compleat.

Objectustrate illustration workshop with Seif Alhasani

My work at Objectustrate workshop with Seif Alhasani at the Lebanese American University (Beirut) in April 2011

 

Innocent, harmful, playful, obedient?
Imaginative, harsh, fragile, or feelingless?
What happens when children become soldiers? Or at least be intertwined in a cause so much that they become manipulated in a game, and the game is their lives?
Wrong? right?
A cause?
What about effect?

This piece was made with multiple-layered cardboard and illustrating a contrast between two children placed in different contexts.
Choices made by elders become fate for their children.
