Nour Saleh is a hijab wearing Canadian. Last year she took up a Tumblr challenge to draw herself as different fictional characters.
I love how Nour responded to that challenge. Not only did she imagine herself as various superheroes, she kept the hijab in all of the illustrations. I think the results work well and the Nour Captain America, with the hijab reflecting the red, white and blue, is a visual to rally around.
Nour is now taking commissions.
