Tomi Ungerer has died at the age of 87. Here’s the obituary by Agence France Presse. And here’s the lede: “The renowned French cartoonist, author and illustrator [was] a lifelong activist who protested against racial segregation, the Vietnam war and the election of US President Donald Trump . . .” And here’s the Washington Post obit.
Ungerer speaks: “I have the full respect of a piece of white paper, which I then shall rape with my drawing or my writing. When I draw, it’s the real me.”
