It’s All Greek to Me

Greece is currently mired in deep fiscal problems… with serious economic repercussions for other countries around the world.

As a cartoonist commenting on these events, there is a great temptation to use images of ancient Greece as vehicles for your messages.

Here’s two cartoons from The Economist employing such visuals. The first one Ā is from this week’s edition (above) and the other (below) from earlier in the crisis when Greek officials seemed to be cooking the economic books.

I think there is no doubt that I will not be alone in the community of cartoonists to tap into the rich library of Greek images to help me in future cartoons.
