Awesome Ayubb from Michael Mohammad Knight’s novel ‘Taqwacores’. It was a story about punk rock muslims that inspired real people to form bands, and eventually spurred a documentry by Omar Majeed and a new film besed on the novel that was part of this years Sundance festival.
I’ve been a fan since the book, and have read alot of his other stuff too, which includes the followup to Taqwacores: ‘OSAMA VAN HALEN’. This pic was inspired by a scene where Amazing Ayubb is walking through a desert with with the intention on killing a bunch of wimpy emo muslim rockers who have lamed up the punk scene by selling out to MTV. Hillarity ensues!
Edit: I was out with some Komina’s and they mentioned that the name of the chracter was ‘Amazing Ayubb’ in the book. I laughed because it’s not my character. This is a visual interpretation of MMK’s character. The author mentioned the name thing to me and it made me smile, so I have changed the name to please these parties.
