    'There is No Future for Art in Sudan'

    We talk to Sudanese cartoonist Talal Nayer about being a political cartoonist in the conflict-ridden country: 'It is forbidden to draw the face of al-Bashir, even if the cartoon is a compliment of the president. Editors-in-chief receive a list of unwanted subjects for publishing. Free political cartoonists are not welcome in this country.' Read the full interview on our blog.

    Monthly Cartoon for Offiziere.ch

    We have started contributing a monthly cartoon to Offiziere.ch, kicking off with a cartoon by Enrico Bertuccioli on Obama and his decision to launch a military intervention in Syria. It was scheduled to run on Cartoon Movement as well; but, alas, events have overtaken the image (or, as we at Cartoon Movement like to think, Mr. Obama saw the cartoon and took it to heart).
