World Ink is a non-profit site that publishes political cartoons from around the world — countries such as Sweden, Switzerland, Nigeria, Algeria, France, Japan, China, and more.

I started the site out of love for political cartoons from abroad and with a belief that cartoon art can bring some understanding and foster dialogue about world events.
