Error 404 – Not Found



May 20th ?

Why, that means today it’s EDMD.

Happy “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” everyone !



As you may have heard this 1st-ever EDMD was thought of by a female cartoonist from the US called Molly Norris .

She did this because of what happened in New York & Washington DC on 9/11… no, I meant because of what happened in Madrid on 3/11 of 2004… no no, it’s because of what happened in London on 7/7 of 2005… wait, EDMD is because of South Park ???

Now that (the animation series) is just stupid.



& also stupid was the whole reason for holding this event.

But even more stupid was Miss Norris because after making the drawing calling for EDMD, posting it on her website & even giving an interview on the radio about it, she chickened out & distanced herself from the whole thing mere days later.

She eventually posted a statement explaining herself, part of which follows below…


“Personally I can feel afraid of Muslims because I really have no idea if in their hearts they hate non-Muslims.

I hope for the sake of this country that moderate Muslims will speak out with everyone else against any violent members of that or any other religion. That way I would know that there is a difference. Maybe this cartoon I made, this fictional poster of “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” had such a wildfire effect because it is finally time for Muslims and non-Muslims to understand one another more.

I am going back to the drawing table now!

Thanks,
Molly”



WTF ?

What kind of response is that ?

To Hell with this clueless “oh-I-dunno-know-if-Muslims-are-evil-or-not” sell-out of a hypocrite.



But her desertion is no reason to worry.

Because we here at X-Mer Central do care for the Freedom Of Speech, so how could we remain silent ?

& by silent I mean picking up the computer mouse & using it for some good ol’ counter terrorism art.



However, EDMD is in no way meant to attack evil Muslim terrorists or even help bridge cultural &/or religious differences between Islam & non-Islam.

This event is nothing more than a piss-poor excuse for non-Muslims to ridicule an entire religion at the expense of everyone including themselves.

& for this very reason I will not be joining up on EDMD to create “art” depicting a certain prophet.



Not all is lost though, as I can still create some art that is not related to EDMD or what it stands for.



A cow



She’s not a prophet, she’s not holy, she’s not even realistic.

She’s a cartoon depiction of a cow & a rather nice one at that.

You see, I had never drawn a cow on my computer before & I’m proud that on this day a stupid event still made me do something new, worthwhile & productive…
