Syria to cartoonist: "That's not funny"

A cartoon by Ali Farzat

BBC's World Edition has an interesting profile of a Syrian cartoonist whose images of generic "powerful" figures abusing generic "weak" figures hit a little too close to home for the Syrian government- they shut down his magazine, and now he can't get his work published in any newspaper in the country.

I'd love to see some of his cartoons (they look more like pen-and-ink drawings filled in with watercolor) at full size. A Google image search turns up a few more of his images.
