Artist Spotlight: Mahmood Mokhtari

I was absolutely delighted to stumble upon Mahmood Mokhtari's blog. I simply love his whimsical yet modern illustrations of some of the most traditional Persian characters; especially his "ZoorKhaane" series. (ZoorKhaane is a traditional Iranian gym, for some real-life pictures check out this link).
Artists like Mahmood Mokhtari deserve far more recognition for their work, and it is a great shame that various other limitations imposed on them by the environment they have to live/work in prevents that.

I would love to buy that whole Zoorkhaneh set in a book or as post-cards ...
