I wanted to capture the feel of one of those old trashy sci-fi pulp magazines. Done in Gouache.

If you went to a party with the Marx brothers, in character, this is what you would see.

I was feeding someone's cats this weekend, which put me on an Egyptian bent. But, since I actually prefer dogs, I decided to paint anubis instead of Bast.

According to the highest authority (Wikipedia), there are very few people, even Muslims who should find this offensive. Muhammed, the Muslim prophet, is sharing a cookie with Jesus, the Christian Savior.

Sunnis are the largest group of Muslims to be concerned with portrayals of the prophet Muhammed, mainly because they fear that it would cause idolatry, the worship of an image over the idea behind it. That is completely rational, and I respect that. But it is not a written in Qu'ran, and bans against it are only ever found in supplemental texts, and resemble the Jewish traditional ban on "graven images".

Persian and Ottoman Muslims over the centuries have created many beautiful works of art depicting Muhammed in a historical light. The Supreme Court Building in Washington DC depicts Muhammed along with Hammurabi and Moses as a Judge and Rule-maker. Devotional and historical films have been made about Muhammed. And in my opinion, yeah, the Dutch cartoons of Muhammed were kind of insensitive, and in my opinion, kind of not funny either. Maybe that's what passes for humor in the Netherlands.

So to anyone who threatens me with violence over a heavily stylized depiction of Muhammed with a cookie: Fuck you.

Go to schoolism.com, click on "TV" and vote for my piece. You get one of Stan Lee's famous no-prizes if you do.

Also, pin-ups are fun to draw, and to look at.

I thought I'd try this in digital too. Painting is more fun, but digital is always so much cleaner.

Let me know which one you like more.

Inspired by Zack de la Rocha's five-song album, "One Day As A Lion."

The title, incidentally, comes from a smattering of graffiti reading, "It is better to live one day as a lion than a thousand years as a lamb."

I saw Bubba Ho-Tep and just couldn't resist. The ankh guns were a personal touch.
