Political cartoonists wield their pens as weapons against injustices.

With daring lines, simple shapes and sharp words, they twist concepts and current affairs into humorous comments on the state of humanity. In the face of censorship, corruption and oppression, cartoonists stand as satirical soldiers, armed with weapons of wit, ink and imagination.

They draw the line on what is black, white and meant to be read.

This cartoon comes from my review of the Freedom of Expression in Broad Strokes exhibit for Cue newspaper during the National Arts Festival 2015.
