The cartoon post this evening is going to be somber, as you can probably tell it will focus on the terrorist events in France this week.
Before we get to the cartoon tributes, let’s touch on a few things:
First a few quick updates on the news:

As for the tributes…
‘Banksy’ Instagram Account Shares Simple But Beautiful Tribute To Charlie Hebdo Cartoonists
UPDATE: Jan. 8 — The image shared on the fake Banksy account in fact belongs to French illustrator Lucille Clerc, who told The Huffington Post via email: “Yes, I can confirm the drawing is mine. Whoever [reposted] this just took my image and added a filter. I didn’t answer as I don’t want it to turn into a polemic, and distract people from the real issues.”
The original “Banksy” Instagram post has since been updated to credit Clerc’s Twitter handle.
You can see more of Clerc’s work here.
Artists Around The World Show They Won’t Be Silenced By Terrorism After Charlie Hebdo Attack
Gunmen stormed the offices of Charlie Hebdo — a satirical newspaper headquartered in Paris — leaving 12 dead Wednesday, including cartoonists Jean “Cabu” Cabut, Georges Wolinski and Bernard Verlhac (also known as Tignous), as well as the publication’s editor/publisher Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier.
In the immediate aftermath, illustrators and artists around the world were moved to express grief and frustration, showing solidarity with their slain colleagues in political cartoons aimed at defending freedom of speech, while also condemning religious extremism. Many of the visualizations capture the absurdity of the terrorist attack in a universal language — cartoons.
There are a lot of cartoons at that link with translations too.
