Even as a school boy Khoury had as special talent for drawing caricatures of his teachers . At 12 he developed an interest in caricature drawing and in studying different facial and body expressions, a talent he later applied in articulating the Palestinian tragedy, the plight of the refugees and the hardship of prisoners during their incarceration.
