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

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

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.

from the Line: It Is Drawn

This has been done before, but I added the twist that  the Joker's plans to kill the Batman are never, ever simple.  One does not SIMPLY kill the Batman...  One goes about it in a very convoluted, unnecessarily complex way.

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 thought it would be cool-looking to have someone litterally tied up with the flag. I have no idea how that strait-jacket work, or what gender that person is, so don't ask.

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.

Everyone should do at least one bit of tiki art in their lives. I've done mine, now go do yours.
