At the weekend I was at Birmingham's MCM comic con!
I spotted a banner with a drawing of a girl in a hijab, and I was so intrigued I had to go over, and this is when I discovered the work of Syeda Faiza illustrations! A hijabi comic book artist and illustrator! 😍
I chatted with Syeda and her sister (who's name I didn't catch, sorry!) for a weeny bit, but I had to rush off. I would have loved to chat for longer!!! 😭
I was in such awe of a Muslim sister making her way in this industry! I couldn't walk away from her stall empty handed! I had to support her! ✨
Here's what I picked up for myself and a friend! A mini sample of a possible future comic, staring a cute hijabi heroine and a sky antler, hijabi stickers and a chibi usa print! I especially love the stickers!!!! And wish I had bought a bunch more!!! And the print is such good quality! 😍
Syeda also gave me the whale print as a freebie, and look how awesome her leaflet is?!? Please go and check her out! 💖@penguinsbite
