As I mourn the loss of my cartoonists colleagues in Paris in the tragic and horrific terrorist attacks, I have been invited to diverse media outlets to share my thoughts about freedom of expression and about Georges Wolinski, one of the slain cartoonists, whom I had the honor to meet a couple of years ago. I'd like to share with you links to some interviews: CNN

Manhatitlan: Mexican and American Cultures Intertwined by Felipe Galindo Published by Jorge Pinto Books. Introduction by Peter Canby, The New Yorker. 56 pg., 8.5 x 5.5", full color. "Feggo's work stands in the rich tradition of Mexico's socially engaged art, an art that strives, using humor and irony, to make sense out of our beautiful and ever more baffling world." -From the Introduction by Peter Canby "What a wicked sense of humor Galindo has. Mexican artifacts enact absurd acts of revenge on Big Apple institutions, a bit like anti-imperialist New Yorker cartoons." -The Washington Post "Galindo's appealing images superimpose Mexican icons over the New York cityscape, in a playful nod to the multiculturalism that helps make the city great." -Time Out New York

“Felipe’s work is not only good humored but good hearted and guaranteed to lift your spirits!” —Gahan Wilson
“It is a rare cartoonist who appeals to such diverse readerships as the Reader’s Digest, Barron’s, The New Yorker and Nickelodeon, to name just a few of the magazines where the widely published Felipe Galindo’s cartoons can be found. As cartoon editor of TheNew Yorker I especially enjoy Felipe’s carefully constructed sight gags, whose wordless humor unites all demographics in laughter.” —Bob Mankoff
