blogroll on the right. I try to limit the number of blogs I link to here, since I use it as a kind of daily reading list.
Anyway, I discovered Muhammad And Me while perusing the referring links in recent StatCounter records.
I was immediately hooked. The artist, Bobby Wheelock, has been publishing cartoons of Mohammed and himself doing everyday activities like riding bikes, shaving, flying kites and making cupcakes.
And while there is no explicit mention of the prophet Muhammad, my personal interpretation is that this is implied.
Reading through some of the comments, it's clear that some people get it and some don't. Some post virulently angry words. And that's okay.
There are two positive results from this artwork. First, it is portraying Muhammad, and implicitly, the Muslim community, in a non-violent everyday approachable manner that is probably closer to what the majority of Muslims are like than what we see on news casts.
Secondly, it is invoking reactions in the realm of ideas, rather than the realm of embassy burnings.
So, keep up the good work, Bobby, I look forward to seeing more.
