The Mexican cartoonists I spoke to all expressed gratitude for the work that they had done and the opportunity to share their work.
While many Mexicans are still fearful of cartoonists, the artists I spoke with are confident that they will be able to keep working in Mexico and have the freedom to draw cartoons for a long time to come.
“The Mexican cartoonist is a little more difficult to reach because he is an alien, he is not a human,” said a cartoonists friend, Mariano.
“There is a very strong fear of him in Mexico.
We know that the government does not want to see Mexicans drawing cartoons.
But I believe that once Mexicans get a chance to see cartoonists they will love it.”
