known as KrikitMedia forever now - looks like the brand has gotten bigger than just me (thanks to ariluv)

:) ...cartoonist, illustrator, writer, musician, Linux geek...

I wish deviantART forwarded notifications to email, then I wouldn't miss so much stuff between infrequent logins...

Sorry people, I still don't get the llama thing.

Many people seem to realize that offensive art is not necessarily rare, but also not necessarily deliberate.  Then, there are other people.

Whether through humor, or otherwise, how much should the possibility of art being offensive affect our decisions to make or release art?  I know this is rather subjective, & none of us may completely agree, but I'm very interested in what everyone thinks about this.  I'm most interested in what artists have to say.  (I'm including all "creatives" in the "artist" designation, so don't get your non-visual trousers soiled)

Some people are offended at religious themes in art, just as some are offended by anti-religious art.  For some, it's politics (same difference to me).  Consider that a cartoonist can get on a kill-list for lampooning a Middle-Eastern prophet, while others get classified as "hip & edgy" for desecrating an altogether different "sacred cow."

Are many of us just using the political-correctness compass to decide this one?  I kind of hope there's more to it than that.

What say you?  I'm curious.
