Brazilian protest cartoonist Carlos Latuff says Erdoğan is his ‘muse’


Brazilian caricaturist Carlos Latuff, who earned fame during the Arab Spring for his cartoons of Middle Eastern leaders, has confessed that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has recently become his “muse” – a fact that he is burning to tell him personally.

“The Middle East is my special area of interest. Turkey draws my attention for being an ally of both the U.S. and Israel. But I would be interested in your country even if that wasn’t the case because your leader is himself a caricature,” Latuff told daily Radikal in an interview, adding that he finds Erdoğan “easy to depict.”
