Samia Fakih

Coming to The Great Philadelphia Comic Con 2017!
April 7th-9th, 2017 at The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.

If you've ever seen Batgirl or Black Cat in the corner of a convention drawing in her sketchbook, it was probably Samia Selene (a.k.a. Samia Fakih), taking a break from wandering artist alley. With a love for markers, watercolor, and everything bold and bright, Samia's style fuses stylized aspects of Manga and Comic styles with traditional media to deliver pieces that are a happy marriage of fine art and geek. Samia's work also celebrates the magical and feminine, and her goal is to bring more female diversity and celebration to her field through her pieces and collaborative projects. When not at conventions, she is making designing pins, bags, and necklaces to sell online and to her community. Samia is NYC based and draws a lot of inspiration from cosplayers, people who bring geek culture to life, whether she is drawing them or making cosplay herself. This is her first convention outside of NYC and Long Island.
