For his latest contribution to the Hexie Farm CDT series, cartoonist Crazy Crab honors activist Chen Guangcheng, who has been held under a particularly strict form of house arrest since being released from prison in 2010. Read more about Chen Guangcheng’s case via CDT. In the drawing, Chen, who is blind, is depicted in the style of Roy Lichtenstein.

Chen Guangcheng, by Crazy Crab of Hexie Farm for CDT:


“This room is too dark, I can’t see a thing!”

[The “room” refers to China and according to the cartoonist, implies that many people in China turn a blind eye to Chen’s case]
