How does a Calligraphy painter work?



Ready for painting.

Every person has a dream, an idea to see the quote of their favorite poem in a beautiful setting. A calligrapher can help with this. Abdullah Yusuf not only describes the letters in a uniquely beautiful way but also edits and paints the background as his clients request.

Freshly made backgrounds are drying.

The papers need special treatment before they can be painted.



An Al-Ikhlas design first looks.

And with a little addition.
Looks better, I think.












Making a design with Persian reeds.



A sketch that has already been approved by the customer is required.




The moment when I take break for pray.

The Rayleigh Mill step by steps pictures, from drafts to ready paintings. Isn't amazing?

Shahada in the heart one of the favorite of the people.

The Al-Ikhlas surah in a heart.

"If I can make someone happy
with my pictures,
it's already worth the effort for me.
And it makes me happy too. "
Abdullah Yusuf

One of my friend daughter's name
in a heart shape.


Design making with turkey feather.




The moment I hold my work in my hands.


Shahadah in black and white.



And the result always makes my heart happy.
