It has been said that the pen is mightier than the sword.
It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words.
The power of art is profound. It can inspire anything from charity to outrage.
I’m aware of the risks of being a satirical cartoonists. I’ve certainly lost friends and respect. My wife has been in tears over some of the hate mail I’ve received from crazy people. However, I haven’t lost life or limb. There are consequences to this art form. But today’s is insane and severe.
My condolences to my fellow satirists at Charlie Hebdo.
