I'm a Middle Eastern, Muslim, & epileptic comics artist, game designer, and illustrator who creates art about coping with illness, understanding identity, dismantling oppressive structures, and Arab-Islamic futurism.
I'm an Ignatz Award winner and Excellence In Graphic Literature Award finalist; I’ve been interviewed & reviewed by Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Electronic Intifada, Library Journal, NPR, and such. I've worked with clients/groups such as PEN America, Art Palestine International, Bigmouth Comix, CollegeHumor, O/R Books, and more.
Dedication + dreams are my lifeblood, and I believe wholeheartedly in the healing power of comics and games. Let’s make powerful things together! ☆
