Imagine you are a graphic artist. You have been commissioned to create a poster of the Ten Commandments that will hang in schools and other areas where kids frequent. Piece of cake, right? Bright colors, cartoon people, everyone smiling, just some general silliness. What if you had to depict these commandments graphically with little or no words, with enough clarity a 5-year-old could understand. Below is number 6, do not commit adultery.
I don’t even want talk about “thou shalt not kill.” It is really difficult to draw a homicide in a cartoon-y way. The smiles and the blood just look fake. Just kidding. I’m just glad the artist went with the “adultery in your heart” version of this and not the Mary Magdeline version.
I will tell you this cartoon made me think of time I spend with God and whether I have someone or something else on my mind or not.
Which commandment do you think would be the hardest to draw as a cartoon?
