Today Cartoon Movement publishes Josh Neufeld's "Bahrain: Lines in Ink, Lines in the Sand
." The story follows Mohammed and Sara, two young Bahraini editorial cartoonists who found themselves on opposite sides of Bahrain's short-lived Pearl Revolution.
Neufeld met Mohammed and Sara at workshops he led while visiting the tiny Persian Gulf country on a U.S. State Department trip. Shortly after Josh became friends with both of them on Facebook, Bahrain underwent much turmoil in protests inspired by the Arab Spring.
Neufeld documents their impressions of the events, through their words, experiences, and their own cartoons, which were published as events unfolded.
