For more information on the Malaak, visit the website.
Joumana started drawing sometime in middle school and has not been able to stop since. Self-taught in figure drawing and comic theory, she enrolled in the American University of Beirut and graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor’s in Graphic Design. She was a TV animator for a brief spell before going freelance to expose herself to different jobs and creative hobbies. She was involved in mail art, learned bookbinding and other crafts, experimented with mixed media and watercolor, which gave rise to several exhibits, as did her travel photography. Eventually she came around full circle to her first love: graphic novels and illustration. She is currently most focusing on her comic book, Malaak: Angel of Peace, and on co-authoring of a series of Lebanese Heritage books for young readers. She is also assistant to the master calligrapher Samir Sayegh, and art director/concept artist of Quirkat Digital Entertainment Solutions.
