Greenpeace cartoon book

Rearranging my cartoon book cabinet, I found this Greepeace cartoon book. (Casterman, 1984, ISBN90 303 2801 0, Dutch edition). This book represents all expressions of support Greenpeace has received from a wide audience for the good cause. "Help, de zee verzuipt!" means "Help, the sea is drowning!". The message is clear: Let's save the wales, the seals and all the creatures threatened by the human race.

Many cartoonists contributed to the book: from, alphabetically, Alexis, Armand, Avoine, Barbe, Batellier, Cat,... to Topor, Veyron, Voss, Warry and Zover.

Walt Cartoons

This book contains almost all the cartoons drawn by Walter Leemans (Leuven, Belgium, °1948) in the years 1965-1971, during his educational period. After this time, Walter Leemans started a successful career as an interior architect and furniture designer. 

This tribute book by his friend Johnny Bekaert was published in 2009.

Many of the cartoons in the book are timeless, even after more than 40 years, that's the skill of a good cartoonist.
