I liked the way the cartoon is portraying a Black humour...but the blood splashes look a bit random

Avec Maître said...

Well, they are not really blood splashes. Je-bhaabe ekta gota community'r gaaye kaali dewa hoyechhilo (apart from slaughtering them), ei cartoon-tay setai bojhaate cheyechhi.

Artistic Mind said...

The thought is awesome, but I am not convinced with the portrayal...sorry

Avec Maître said...

Sorry bolte hobe na. It's all about communication.

I don't think there's any humour in this at all-black or otherwise; the form of portrayal notwithstanding...i think its plain brilliant. In-your-face. Something so direct, so blatant,you cannot but face it. No matter how much you cringe.

Avec Maître said...

As I said: it's all about communication.

Communicated the idea, whether blood or not, the blotch was indelible.

Sorry for initially mistaking the splotches as blood. The concept is very direct and bold, and that's why I like it.

uncanny resemblance with Manmohan .. is that intentional?

Avec Maître said...

As far as I can tell, no.

Very apt and well timed cartoon. It's worth more than a thousand page essay.

Nice thought and good execution... and as somebody already commented--it's a direct slap, in-your-face...
