My last cartoon for The Glasgow Guardian, and it was a fun one. Very UK-based political topic, so you’re forgiven if you don’t understand because you aren’t in the UK. If you are in the UK however, NO FORGIVENESS.
Bombardement de Tous les Trônes de l'Europe et la Chûte des Tyrans pour la Bonheur de l'Univers (The Bombardment of All the Thrones of Europe and the Fall of the Tyrants for the Happiness of the Universe) - Anonymous French artist, circa 1792.
In this political cartoon the deputies of the French National Assembly (the sans-culottes, or no-britches), led by Liberty, aim their, er, invective at the monarchs of Europe who are endeavoring to overthrow Revolutionary France, headed by Catherine the Great.
