Charlie Hebdo

Charlie Hebdo

22 January 2015

 

I don’t think there’s much to say about the recent Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris that hasn’t already been said. But cartooning about Charlie Hebdo? That’s going to last a very long time.

The above is my effort drawn for religious magazine Touchstone to mark the tragic events of 7th January, a fortnight ago as of my writing this. It pales alongside many of the outstanding cartoons that have come from cartoonists all around the world responding to this very personal tragedy for this community, but I trust it makes its point clearly enough (and hopefully brings a laugh along with the bad pun.)

I once published a whole book of sacrilegious cartoons, so naturally the whole tragedy is something that’s given me much pause for thought. I’ll be writing more about this soon, so stand by…
