Latest Middle East Cartoon Fallout

image

Two feature articles show how a conflict like that currently unfolding in the Middle East has an impact on all areas of life, including ramifications for cartoonists. The first article profiles an unnamed member of an Israeli army group drawing cartoon propaganda dropped into Lebanon, which I find fascinating on a number of levels. Meanwhile, Mazen Kerbaj's cartoon-oriented blog of personal missives from Beirut, which I hope has been bookmarked by many of you, is apparently not available in every country in the region, because access to Flickr where the images are stored is denied. This looks to have led to some mirror posting and e-mailing of images, which I think is noteworthy as a groundswell of support.
