What Drawing Mohammad is Really About


I challenged my fellow cartoonists to draw Mohammad earlier today on Twitter, and a few people responded defensively, suggesting that they don't have a moral responsibility to do so, that they can't draw, that they don't want to risk their lives, that they don't want to piss off Muslims, etc. I first drew Mohammad after I read about the Danish Mohammad cartoonists being threatened with death. It's an issue of free speech, and no one is going to tell me what I can or cannot draw. It's about defiance of evil, in the end. My original art for this cartoon is for sale. It's drawn in India ink on 11 x 13 bristol board paper.
