    Je suis Charlie

    Although it may not fully share all satyrical styles, my mouse could not accept at all not to be free to draw and criticize anything with the only limitations represented by the shared universal principles and the democratic law systems which were built respecting them. No Al Qaida, ISIS, Boko Haram or similar hords of demons may tell any mouse or pencil or brush what can and cannot be done.

    If You follow the news daily, I think I don't need to explain the topic, although there are in the vignette some considerations in French language that I hope I reminded correctly enough there. I also hope there may be, among so many artists and drawers in here, other Charlie too.

    Merci, cher Neil!

    Peut-etre il faut un peu de courage pour l'affirmer.
    Maybe a little courage is required to state it.

    That's what art's about, isn't it -- at some point it's about the relationship between the art and the viewer, sort of like speed dating. (D Akey)

    A terrible affront to freedom of expression. The world has changed forever. Brilliant cartoons coming out around the world. I blogged about it yesterday http://www.hillies-imagenation.com/blog and like you, didn't have to go into details.

    Dear Caesar,
    Je Suis Charlie, et je serai toujours ....
    The global outpouring of solidarity for this senseless act gives hope to all who demand a stop to these horrendous acts of terrorism...there is strength in numbers and power in words and images.

    Thank You to all joining Charlies!

    Ciau Andrea! Merci! Deu piciu assassin, né? Spero di aver reso giusto in Turineis ....

    Holy words, dear Hildee! In these days criminal and idiot performance and the underneath sick ideologies are the last resource and target to find a sense to empty life of too many young maladjusted persons all over the world and in our countries too. Just another way to seek their self-destruction as a redemption easily used and abused by any evil masters and too many despicable Islamist leaders pretending that God have their same will, a blasphemy they don't want to realize. We cannot abdicate from civilization, progress and universal principles where human collective and individual rights are the global and shared "sharia" base though.

    Right dear Steve! Maybe it's more than a metaphore to say that God's Word created the World and make it live and run while satanic deceptive words of disguised demons prefer to generate destruction and death, especially, but vainly, that of our soul faith, hope and love, that is, ultimately, peace, happiness and joy.

    I notice that I was somehow easily prophetic to say graphically here (with this sort of Hydra regenerating heads and tips sodomizing the killer) that this deed would have caused a strike-back effect. In France and Italy support to ISIS and jihad and similar delirious ideas are diving to zero on internet social media!

    This is utterly surreal to me. Their action is so unbelievably low. Mindless and inarticulate. Perhaps that is why they strive to keep their followers mute and devoid of thought and artful expression so that they only see the world in black and white and their only way to exert their will is through violence and intimidation. So low.

    Thank You, dear D Akey for Your essential comment. Give to some people some wrong assumption and tease their worst instinct in the void of positive emotions, experiences and feelings and You get a robot moved by a wrong logic and the worst feelings as an ant among other of a multi-organism existing in their mythological mind.

    It is so inspiring to see millions in France turn out to stand for Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité. Makes me nostalgic for my European roots (my mother had French background).

    I found this video yesterday with the cartoonists at work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHE-CVE1zJA. I once worked in an office when I was a lot younger where our cartoonists did the same thing - just drew on the spot, so talented, didn't even have to think twice about drawing, they just did it. Sad to see these people in their offices where they were murdered. Good on Charlie Hebdo for putting out a mag this week to hundreds of thousands more than their original clientele.
