My Inky Heroes

September 24, 2015
   Some connections span the globe and defy language and culture. If you try and represent life through pen work there is a bond that connects a whole bunch of us. And if you believe nothing is sacred when it comes to humor, then we are connected by an even stronger bond.

These are the cartoonists from Charlie Hebdo who were assassinated for their cartoons. These guys are from my tribe and I grieve their loss. Hard to believe someone would kill them for that, but this is the world we live in. I still think no one has improved on Robert Crumb's line:

"It's just lines on paper folks."
—R. Crumb
