Speaking of copyright infringement… these pictures were sent to me by my friend Julio Cesar Maranjo Marin, a terrific cartoonist from Colombia I met last summer when I visited Cali to speak at a cartoonist’s event:
This restaurant is right down the street from where Julio works. The mural is covered with lifted caricatures… I believe the Batman one was done by Ben Burgraff. I’m not sure about the Marx Bros., Marilyn, Bogart (? or maybe Warren Beatty?) or the Mona Lisa with the black eye. The rest are all old ones of mine.
Absolutely no point to this post, unless it’s to illustrate how far reaching the internet is when work you’ve posted gets copied onto fast food restaurants in far away countries.
Thanks for the pics, Julio!
