As the title of the thread alludes to I am heading to the G20 to protest in Toronto, I have been in a little bit of a panic as I have no artistic
ability and did not desire to be the guy who clearly wrote his sign with a Sharpie. I have seen people ask for artists help on here in the past and
it struck me that this is a good community to reach out to.
Id love not only your input on my idea for my sign but if any of you out their want to take on the challenge I would truly appreciate it.
IDEA: My personal passion battle is against those who wish to censor freedom of speech and freedom of expression. As we all know the most recent
example of censorship has been regarding the depiction of the prophet Mohammed. South Park famously attempted to poke fun at the appropriate line of
what is appropriate in the eyes of Muslims regarding the depiction of Mohammed. I am aware it is never okay FOR MUSLIMS to depict Mohammed but just
as South Park pushed the limits of what is allowed I wish to as well.
SIGN: My idea for my sign would be the face and head of Mohammed but not a drawing instead all his features are the written word Mohammed. It is
difficult to explain but I have it clearly in my head, like his eyebrows would be Mohammed spelled out little and his jaw Mohammed spelled out one or
couple times, however, im just picturing where there would be lines or features on his face instead of using a straight line use the word Mohammed.
IS THAT OKAY?
Because im not drawing him, im writing out his name in different locations.
Please ask clarifying questions if need be, I always pictured the depiction of Mohammed from the Danish cartoons but without the bomb. However if
someone chooses to tackle any way the decide id love to see.
Thank you all very much hopefully ill be able to make my voice heard!!!
