Comics: Draw the Line Here
The Pro-Cartoonist’s blog reports on Draw The Line Here, a benefit publication, a joint venture between English PEN and the Professional Cartoonists’ Association, which aims to raise funds to donate to the families of the victims of the Charlie Hebdo atrocity and for ongoing work defending the freedom of expression for writers and artists using the new UK-based CrowdShed fundraising platform. From the Pro Cartoonists’ blog entry:
“In the wake of the terrible events in Paris on 7th and 8th January, English Pen decided to do something to help contribute to the funds set up by Charlie Hebdo for the families of the victims and also to gain further support for their work campaigning for freedom of speech worldwide. The most obvious thing to do was to ask some of the best cartoonists in the UK to donate cartoons about the attack on freedom of speech by terrorists and to publish them in a book.
Draw The Line Here is that book and your generosity is sought in order to make it the worthwhile success that it ought to be.”
Please do lend support if you can and of course please do spread the word around social media about this.
