Discuss: Jos Valdmans "Another Greek Tragedy" Cartoon
This cartoon was created by Australian cartoonist Jos Valdman for the Adelaide Advertiser.
On social media today he got caned for it with many calling it "tasteless" and a "mockery of Greece".
As a cartoonist who creates work in the face of tragedy, I often draw on historical examples of a nations bravery as a tribute. I believe Jos Valdman was referring to the bravery of the Greek people, in this case referencing their ancient past when fighting fires. It wasn't a slander on modern Greek firefighters either.
Would be interesting to hear colleagues opinion on this.
