alberto-montt Those of us who have no other communication tool than writing try – most of the time, in vain – to explain the world with a flood of words; words that flow into the Internet Ocean where billions of words already cohabit. Cartoon virtuosos, however, are capable of conveying an idea through drawing and without words, or with just a few.
