It amazes me, just how much can be communicated through a single image! A single thought transformed into a sketch/drawing/painting/photograph can leave us thinking about really important issues and/or it can get us revisiting issues in different and imaginative ways. When we look at such an image, it can capture our imaginations and can have us searching for the subliminal messages the artist is trying to convey. The images don’t drown us in a sea of words, they make us stop in our tracks and just think!
This year’s “Niels Bugge Cartoon Award” had illustrators and cartoonists from around the world submit drawings about a singular global concern “climate change” (Brooks, K. 2014). There were over 1,000 entries from Iran, China, Syria, the U.S. and the host country, Denmark (Brooks, K. 2014). The catalogue of 2014 “2.Niels Bugge Cartoon Award” can be viewed by clicking here.
