Illustrators respond to the Charlie Hebdo attack

An overwhelming show of solidarity from illustrators around the world...


Illustrators around the world have picked up their pens, pencils and brushes in response to the terror attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris yesterday and to honour the magazine's fundamental belief in freedom of speech...

Buro 24/7 reported earlier on the Lucille Clerc illustration that has been doing the rounds online via a 'Banksy' Instagram account, paying tribute to the 12 victims killed in the Charlie Hebdo terror assault in Paris. Jean Jullien was one the first illustrators to pay tribute yesterday, causing the #jesuischarlie to start trending across social media.
