Thirty-year-old Nabhan's remarkable body of work has earned 975,059 page views with 7,931 comments on deviant art from his followers. Also, his fans from different parts of the world have been sharing his caricatures/cartoons through multiple websites. Some of his best illustrations are featured on the popular 9gag.com social media.
Surprisingly Nabhan never draws any sketches, instead he works directly via Adobe Illustrator. "My concept of art is about relating to daily life situation and my subjects are inanimate objects," he says.
Nabhan, however, brings to life a character.
For every illustration he does, he brings out the character's mood, choices, emotions and feelings.
His work is often described by his fans as "art works with a twist".
"He fuses cute visual characters with literal twists, creating adorable illustrations," describes one of his fans.
The talented artist decided to be an illustrator because that is what he enjoys doing.
"I believe in doing what you are good at," Nabhan explains.
For his work, Nabhan swears by one software — Adobe Illustrator.
"I work on Adobe Illustrator as it is the most suitable software for my style of work," he says.
Ideas for his illustrations just "strike him". "Sometimes when I have a block, I push myself and am flooded with ideas," he says.
If there is something that Nabhan stays away from, it is reference to politics or religion. "Since I want to reach out to everybody, I stick to human interest themes," he says.
Nabhan's aim is to bring joy in the lives of his fans and followers.
"When I receive thank you letters stating "you made my day", it makes mine too. The reason I avoid illustrating political thoughts is because then you end up hurting someone," he says.
Though Nabhan has a huge fan following across the world, he has yet to make a name locally.
"I am happy with the global attention but I would love to have my own art exhibition in
Nabhan has launched a lot of humorous conceptual illustrations. Several of them are also available as T-shirts, posters, pillows and can be purchased through http://society6.com/Nabhan
Nabhan started his art career through vector paintings. "My vector paintings were full of drama and romance. After my marriage, I jumped into the world of comedy-themed illustrations. Humour and vector style of paintings don't match," he says.
"Time is also a factor. While vector paintings take three days to finish, illustrations barely take three hours," he adds.
Ask him about his personal favourite art work of all times, he says, "It has to be 'Idol'. The Disney fan that I am, it will always be the closest to my heart. I have structured this illustration in my head since 2009, but I wasn't sure that I was capable of illustrating such a detailed illustration until 2011. 'Idol' was my first step into the world of illustrations and it was featured on several websites gaining huge numbers of 'likes' and 'shares'."

Nabhan has been featured in Adobe Master Class: Illustrator book which features several professional artists who use the programme Adobe Illustrator and you'll find several pieces of his art in it.
