Old caricatures of recent characters

Category: Economist, caricature

MubarakFrom time to time I have the job of scouring through past cartoons in search of a specific request. It is often an educational experience. I find forgotten images and sketches. I have published, by my count over 6000 cartoons so I guess I can be forgiven for not remembering all of them.

I recently stumbled upon these caricatures I drew in the mid 1980’s for The Economist. They feature political figures still on the international scene: Colonel Qaddafi of Libya, President Mubarak of Egypt, Fidel Castro and Bill Clinton (from the 90’s). They, of course look much younger (and I, of course have not changed at all).
