Samia Selene Fakih is a comic artist/illustrator based in bustling New York City. Her comics take a visible and visceral approach to all those funny emotions people experience in their daily lives, from the slog of a boring day job, to trying to find the one friend that won’t judge you for being different (or non-human). While “Merboy” is a fully watercolored, kid friendly short about mutual support and finding friends who are a bit different from you, “Potato Chips” is a series of short stories about all the friends we lose track of in life for good, bad, and silly reasons. Her illustrations are bright, expressive, and celebrate a punk-cute aesthetic that celebrates gender fluidity and magical women.
