Chess Cartoons for You
A cartoon is a form of illustrated visual art using a non-realistic or semi-realistic drawing or painting intended for satire, caricature, or humor. The art usually acts as a visual metaphor to illustrate a point of view on the topic (as you know, the brain is an analog processor working by analogy and metaphor).
Even if cartoons in foreign languages aren’t sometimes your thing (all but Jovan Prokopljevic and “Don’t play Putin” are Russian), the original cartoons below are utterly charming. “Chess is an international language” (quote by Edward Lasker) and we all will grasp the point in them intuitively.
Very special thanks go out to all cartoonists here for their wonderful cartoons!
Making a safe path through a mine-field (the sign reads it’s a safe one)
Chess Therapy (the writing on the placard reads “Solving contest”)
Who said “checkmate?”
V. Hopov and E. Gladkov:
Don’t play chess with Putin
