Kurt Westergaard

Kurt Westergaard, the Danish cartoonist who drew the inflammatory images of the prophet Mohammed a few years ago for Josh Baker at Metaleap for use in Paste Magazine. If you don't know the story, he's a couple of attempts on his life, the last being a Somali guy who tried to break into his house with an axe . . . As if us illustrators and cartoonists don't have it tough enough as is! You'll notice the angry Muslim man on the right side of the sketch did not make it into the final, and I think it was a good edit. I find my flesh to be rather susceptible to axes.

Thought I'd throw in some process work, too.
