Ivory Coast

Currently Cartooning For Peace Ambassador for Côte d’Ivoire, Lassane Zohoré became the cartoonist for the humorous column “Le sourire du jour” in the Ivorian daily Fraternité Matin in 1985. Several newspapers, including Courrier International and Jeune Afrique, solicited his talent. Reporters Without Borders, international institutions and NGOs as part of awareness-raising campaigns have also often used his cartoons.

Author of various comic books such as Cauphy Gombo – No pitié in bizness ! as well as collections of cartoons such as Kotoubou, Le sida et autres affaires le concernant, Kimboo contre la drogue (in collaboration), he is also president of Tâche d’encre, the association of press cartoonists and comic strips of the Ivory coast, and of “Coco Bulles”, the International Festival of Press Cartoons and Comics in The Ivory coast. He is the 2nd Vice-President of the Press Publishers of the Ivory coast (GEPCI).
