When we say, God is everywhere, it clearly indicates that we mean that His influence is everywhere/all-pervasive; I don't understand how can that mean everyone and everything is Allah.

Well, if God influences you, then why can He not influence you to draw, paint, grow flowers, write - which can be for a book, plant trees and etc. So many people say they were influence by God and they give thanks to God.

As for the moon and earth, well I guess that is a little out of reach  

But then, you are not claiming to create life. Are you?? 

Um....If and when I have a baby I will

Therfore, my personal understanding of the matter is that it is unislamic to depict huamn beings and animals in art merely for the sake of pleasure or entertainment (but, for the sake of information/documentation, its alright).

If that is what you understand, it is fine

You might like to research the matter some more, one day when you are able to.

If you read my post carefully, my point was, when you are writing a post or doing daily chores you are probably not  claim to be creating life.

Besides, when you will be producing a baby, you can only claim to be deriving life from pre-existing life. Even the best of the scientists are nowhere near "creating" life.

You probably deserve 10 Noble Prizes if you are able to create life from a scratch.    

Also, even if you are able to CREATE life!!, you will still not be able to claim that you can reproduce the beauty in Allah's creation by depicting animals or humans in photographs, sculpture etc (though you can claim you can create life through your apparatus that you would have invented etc.).
