KARACHI: A couple of weeks ago, a video of #DontRushChallenge was making rounds on social media. The video, made by eight Pakistani visual artists, garnered praises on Twitter and Facebook alike.

The video, lead by Paak Legion famed Umair Najeeb Khan included seven other illustrators, each owning the craft.

However, the recent project by Khan has brought back memories almost every 90s kid holds so dear. Titled, Good Old Bachpan, Umair shared with The Express Tribune that he plans on converting his latest project in a book.

"The book basically is a throwback to the 90s, my childhood reimagined, showing how children perceive their parents and family," he shared. "It's centred around moms mostly, but I'm showing other people of the family too."

Umair added that the basic idea behind the project is to keep it as inclusive as possible. "So far it has been received really well," he continued.

On Saturday, the 26-year-old Islamabad based artist shared his Eid illustration. He wrote, "Abbu would take me and my brothers out for Eid shopping every year to get new clothes but little me had to accessorise as well and that meant new topi, shades, wristwatch and a new wallet to bag the Eidi. As soon as we would get home, I’d wear everything and show Ammi my Eid ‘look’."

And it's too adorable for words!

He has now shared another one of the Eid illustrations. And it is right on the money!

"Eid was all about eidi back in the day. My competitive self was always a sore loser because my sister would somehow get more Eidi than I did and she would of course always rub it in my face," he shared with an illustration of two kids.

And Twitter is in awe!

Previously, Umair shared a few illustrations based on Ramazan and childhood.

According to him, he plans on releasing his book in July. We cannot wait!
