English Al Jazeera

English Al Jazeera
(click to access "all sizes")

For an opinion piece in The Manitoban. I haven't been able to read the article yet, but the writer himself said that he hoped the English version of Al Jazeera would give us North Americans a more balanced view of the Arabic world, and that's what he wanted to express in his piece.
I'm hoping that the angry Muslim hand puppet doesn't cause offense. I was trying to get across the reinforcing of Islamic stereotypes, and how condescending such an action is.
Originally, Ted (the graphics editor of The Manitoban) thought it was just going to be on a black and white piece, but found out otherwise. I came up with the color version relatively fast.
