Egypt-based graphic designer and an architect Mahmoud El Sayed has been always fascinated by word manipulation, and now he found a way to express his passion with this personal challenge of illustrating Arabic words and the meanings behind them.

The artist claims he already had made around 40 illustrations and has plans to carry on with his project. Also he is tying to give a little introduction to Arabic language and the art of calligraphy, and to encourage his followers to learn some of the Arabic words by transliterating them in the Latin alphabet.
