Micro-finished Artwork

His work stood out amongst the others as his minute finishes and perfect drawings were noticed by the masters in the field, and difficult art assignments such as portraits of the heroes of independence landed in his lap. His artworks received one award after another for excellence. He got one good opportunity after another and soon got a high paying job in the Middle East. First in UAE with Manhattan-Gulf where he handled multinational clients for the first time; and then, after a few years’ stint with Pakistan’s largest advertising agency Orient McCann Ericson, he was invited by Makkah Advertising (now a publishing concern: Makkah Communications) as its creative director where he continues to work even after 24 years.
