Dissent in Egypt: No joking matter

Illustrator’s Notes

What stood out to me from this article was a quote from Ahmed Sanoussi in the last paragraph.

…he was asked if there should be any rules for satire. “Yes,” he said, “to attack only the powerful, not the weak.

I chose a the imagery of a court jester in the classic “walk like an egyptian” pose, to signify the frailty of the comedian in the presence of modern day kings. The jester is surrounded by the call to attack the powerful, not the weak.
