It is thanks to the press drawing competition launched in the summer of 2013 by the daily newspaper l’Opinion that Kak joined the editorial staff. Since then, he has been illustrating the front page every day and has been sticking his spikes in the four cardinal points of French and international politics.
His hobbies: comics, cartoons and cinema (a sector where he worked for 20 years). He thus takes a malicious pleasure in portraying our rulers as characters from Disney, Pixar, Uderzo, Franquin, Hergé and other drawing geniuses. And he always does it with a lot of application in his line, faithful to a thought gleaned from Nietzsche: “Man’s maturity is to have found the seriousness that we had at play when we were children.”
Kak is president of the Cartooning for Peace.
