The tragedy at Lampedusa has cost the lives of over 250 people. Royaards: 'We Europeans should really consider if we want the integrity of our borders to cost so many lives...'
Fantastic idea....simple and precise!
You are right, it's a very fine balance. For me, adding gruesome details works when they are part of the core message of the cartoon, like in this cartoon by Tomas: http://www.cartoonmovement.com/cartoon/12008
In my cartoon, however, I feel the message works well without any blood or bodies.
Yeah, I can understand.
The risk is cartoons that don't bother, shake or provoke their audiences, by making uncomfortable truths more easily digestible and forgettable.
I suppose it all depends on what you want the message to be.
Thanks. I tend to avoid blood and corpses in my cartoons, because they often offend and upset people (even when their use is legitimate) to the point where the message of the cartoon is lost.
Good, but where are the floating bodies ?
sad but hopeful. very good
