This is one of the five drawings i made for the caricature contest of Muscat Festival last year. The contest had two categories: Anti-Smoking & Environmental Cleanliness. All the five drawings I made were for the Anti-Smoking Category. The winning drawings were to be shown in the Caricature Gallery in Qurm Park during the festival. unfortunately none of my drawings made it to the gallery.
The drawing shows a group of smokers enjoying a ride on the back of their favorite buddy Mr. Cigarette. Not telling them where they're headed to, Mr.Cigarette is taking the smokers to "Death" Land. I had to translate this drawing since the original one was in Arabic. Of course i couldn't translate it literally otherwise it would sound awful in English, so i had to change it a little bit .
The characters i made in the drawing are wearing the national Omani dress "The Dishdasha". Same goes for all the other drawings i made for the contest since the audience of the gallery was Omani. I will be posting the rest of the drawings one by one after I translate them to English.
