Montecito Cartoonist Mourns Murdered Peers

Political cartoonist Daryl Cagle is mourning friends killed the Paris attack Wednesday.

He saw some of them in October during a French editorial cartoon convention.

He even drew the poster for the festival after receiving an award the year before.

That is something he had in common with Georges Wolinksy. Wolinksy, who also won the French Legion of Honor, was among those killed.

The former Muppet artists draws his editorial cartoons in his Montecito home. His home is decorated with framed cartoons.

The publisher of the Cagle Post online said political cartoons are so popular in France that they are on display at the Louvre museum.

He is also mourning Bernard Verlhac who goes by Tignous.

He said “I can’t emphasize enough how much these guys were revered, what lovely guys they are, what a loss this is and how important it is not to allow this to chill our speech.”

Cagle said cartoons speak louder than words– that’s why people stick them to their refrigerators.

He is now working on memorial cartoons.
