Laugh now but soon we'll be in charge!

Well, 1st of all they don't seem to be caring about voters turnout which is not shocking.
2ndly I am so so delighted today, I'll tell you later why!(if you've already guessed why, yes I did it.) so mission's halfly accomplished though.
3rdly Pound is much cheaper than what it was month ago, maybe I'll have round about £20 0r £30 more this month in my account.
4thly I'm trying to stay away from politics so ignore the first line of this entry.
5thly I saw this graffiti of monkeys wearing a tee-shirt saying "laugh now but soon we'll be in charge!" which was shall I say coolly drawn on a train.
6thly wanna have your say, leave comment.

Qashqai Nomads

Qashqai nomads / Fars-Marvdasht-Persepolis / 1384

For centuries the Fars region had been a multi-ethnic region, in which tribal and pastoral nomadic groups composed a large part of the population. The Qashqai compose a community of settled, semi-settled, and pastoral nomadic households who reside mainly in the Fars region of southern Iran.
Go to to read more about Qashqai tribe.

Just like what happened to me 2 years back, but interestingly enough when I drew this I had absolutely no idea it's gonna happen to me, myself very soon!
I drew this for some cartoon festival that was due to be held somewhere outside Iran with Immigration as its main subject, don't remember where exactly it was though. needless to say that it's on canvas.
