On Copyright, Copyleft, and the Artists' DilemmaThe question of copyrighting one's work is one of the very few issues in the world about which I still hold a "moderate" stance. One the one hand, an artist (be they cartoonist, musician, author) wants and should be compensated for their work. On the other hand, the goal of many artists is to spread their work to as broad an audience as possible. As of now, my opinion changes on a case-by-case basis.
As a child, I was obsessed with the concept of copyrighting or somehow "protecting" my workmy drawings were a private thing, I did not ever want to see my cartoon characters conceived by the imaginations of my family and I reproduced in someone else's hand. To a seven-year-old with an anxiety disorder, seeing your original ideas bastardized by a classmate's sloppy hand triggered a sensation akin to gouging sporks into your eyes. My dad helped to calm me once by telling me that technically whatever I created, I owned, and no one could take that away from me. (As I got older
What's Up NowHi folks, I hope at least one of you has been wondering where I've gone off to during the past four months... hopefully my long DeviantArt absence will be coming to a close this summer. I was in Argentina for three amazing months but without a scanner, and my dad's home computer with the art programs (and my artwork) on it just crashed. D'oh! I've brought my school scanner up to my bedroom, which I've noticed sucks out quite a lot of color, but I can at least post some of the black and white artwork.
Some things I've been working on/you will see this summer:
-A logo for the theater production Cabaret
-A logo for a fall 2009 Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions conference at Hampshire College
-Sneak peeks at an entry for the spring 2010 Hampshire College Commencement poster
-A totally farcical, non-political comic book about Che and Fidel, which will hopefully be finished in time to exhibit at the Small Press Expo this fall in Bethesda, Maryland (fingers crossed!)
-Alongside my real
My Prank Call to the IDFThe IDF has spread leaflets all over Gaza with a number people are supposed to call to rat out Hamas members. (Medical care has been denied to some desperately sick Palestinians until they give up names.) Instead of calling the hotline and asking the Israelis if they had Prince Albert in a can, I decided to be an adult and actually report some terrorists. Here is what I said:
my name is Hannah, and I am a white American calling to inform you about some terrorist organizations in Israel that you may not be aware of.
Sir, I am afraid that the Nazis may have risen again under your very nose. I am afraid that they may have risen again because of the obsession in your country with ethnic cleansing, your insistence on a racial hierarchy. I was uncomfortable the minute I stepped into Ben-Gurion Airport. You did your best to make me, a non-Jew, feel unwelcome. Your security guards, asking why I didn't speak Hebrew and why I had an unfamiliar (Scottish) name, conveyed with their ques

Nothing Has Changed"In our country there is room only for the Jews. We shall say to the Arabs: Get out! If they don't agree, if they resist, we shall drive them out by force."

UntitledAhla" asdaqa'iy fi DeviantArt,
I can't believe my fortune, but this Saturday I'm shipping out to Palestine for two weeks to participate in a Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions summit! I can't wait to kick colonialism's ass, and I've set up a blog to chronicle my adventures: http://meenerhabi.blogspot.com/
Besides taking a swing at I$rael, I am excited beyond belief at the IMAGES I'm going to bring back, between my sketches and my photos: stuff they don't want you to see (sand, sun and segregation: ya like that, IDF?!).
Wish us luck, and I'll see y'all when I get back!
Question for Muslim ArtistsAs you can probably tell, I am an amateur calligrapher interested in Islamic art. I have stuck to drawing names, words and phrases since I am not a religious person, but lately have wanted to try writing longer quotes from the Qur'an as gifts for some Muslim friends. I asked a friend who is Palestinian to check my grammar on a phrase I had written on a sheet of homework that had been converted into an elaborate artwork. He said that he used to doodle Qur'anic verses on scrap paper but stopped, since they would be thrown away and this is prohibited.
I had no idea about this restriction, and realized I am treading in sensitive territory. I am new to this whole monotheism thing (raised without a religion), but recognize the sanctity and importance of the Holy Books and His word.
In the interest of avoiding cultural misappropriation, is a non-Muslim "allowed" or authorized to write Qur'anic verses? What are the "rules" concerning Qur'anic calligraphy? I do not want to make the mistake of p
April and FoolsI saw that my icon had changed into a blue creature today and at first I thought that I was popular enough that someone hacked my account, but then I realized that everyone had a blue creature and was like, naww! ...So, a few random things to talk about:
Yesterday during the walk-out, it snowed. Ten years ago on this day, we got an April Fools' blizzard, which everyone here from New England (I'm from Massachusetts) remembers. I started thinking back to where I was ten years ago on this day. I believe I was 9 at the time, in 4th grade. I was fucking miserable in school, had no friends, a handful of undiagnosed disorders, and had literally only my art and imagination to keep me company outside of my home.
Ten years later, I am still drawing. (I never quit drawing during class, all you fuckers who told me to stop.) I am beautiful, healthier, more social, have lots of friends I can count on and actually enjoy spending time with them, am in a happy relationship and am used to living away fr
