from theunionleader:

"Molly Norris, a reluctant phenomenon, wants to return to her quiet artist's life, the one she lived largely unnoticed until she drew the Prophet Muhammad -- as a spool of thread, a box of pasta, a cup of coffee, a domino, a cherry and a doggie purse.

"Take your pick. Since depictions of Muhammad aren't allowed under some (but not all) interpretations of Islam, no one knows what he looks like. And, bummer alert, anyone who tries to capture his likeness is subject to punishment by death."

Which apparently led to severe case of cold feet for this artist after the South Park cartoonists were indirectly threatened w/punishment.
