The Legend Carlos Latuff

Sometimes you may come across people who are more devoted to a country than its actual citizens. Carlos Latuff, an internationally renowned professional cartoonist is one of those people, who, despite being Brazilian and has never visited Egypt, has successfully amazed all Egyptians with his work, especially as one of the biggest supporters to the Egyptian revolution. His political cartoons have rocked Tahrir Square two years ago and lifted revolutionists’ spirits, highlighting all the factors that really ignited the revolution. The cartoons which were created on his desk in Rio De Janeiro, were used as banners in Tahrir square reflecting his great support for the Egyptians. They acted as veritable weapons being put on all t-shirts and posters and a source of inspiration, while he was physically 6000 miles away.
