Inspired by the latest upheaval on Red Bubble
RedBubble and Free Speech

Featured In High Quality Images, Dark Cabaret

This piece The two hands we were given to create by Shoaib pretty well sums up how I feel about the situation.
So sad to see some of my friends gone….

“The religious paper (Ultra Orthodox Hasidic newspaper) never publishes pictures of women, as they could be considered “sexually suggestive.”

Some fun with types. Fonts used:
Text – Courier (T1)
Man – letter c – GoodDogBones
Balancing pole – letter b – CropBats II AOE
Pointing Fingers – letter c, d – Wingdings 2

    Interesting debate going on. I’m a firm believer in individual freedoms, period. If someone wants to burn the American flag, I’ll just fly my flag higher. To take away the rights of some people is to take them away from all of us sooner or later. Just my humble opinion, not that I want to get into the fray. Anyway, good image and food for thought, John!
