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.

I don't watch the show, but I needed a context for the whole "Obama's staying cool as a cucumber while McCain's blowing up like an over-heated pop-tart" metaphor.

Okay, here's the Devil card from a tarot pack, redesigned by me. Notice the choker with the pentagram on it.

Ink and digital.

He is quite proud of his monogrammed tie. He should be. There's nothing else about him worth being proud about, is there?

Went to the zoo today. Drew me a komodo dragon.

These suckers are poisonous. One bite, and you're in for days of pain. And while you wander around, getting weaker, your wound festers, and komodo dragons all around can smell it. They follow you. Patiently. Until you fall. Picking your skeleton clean should take it no more than a few hours.

Another character concept, the komodo dragon. I'm rather fond of this guy :)

From the Line: It Is Drawn, over at CBR...

Lonely Seussians in a lonely Seuss city, which was fun, because Seuss cities don't have any straight parallel lines.

This was one of my prototypes for the school project i mentioned in my previous deviation. It's on the whole religion trying to stop the freedom of speech thing. i still have to refine it, but this is what i've got so far.

I needed to grab a logo for a shirt, and the combine logo from HL2 was it. Only problem was finding one. So I had to make one myself. This is oddly enough made in Flash Mx 2004, which proves to be a better logo drawing tool than most give it credit. Hope you like it, feel free to put it on a shirt. If you do however, send me a pic of it!
