Eurozone Crisis Cartoons

Countless eurozone crisis cartoons have been drawn since the beginning of the current economic crisis. However, Guardian newspaper cartoonist Kipper Williams is having a blast with the eurozone crisis, and through his work, it is easily identifiable that Greece is at the epicentre of his work. Through his cartoons he aims to depict the seriousness and the devastation of this crisis via a silly and fanciful manner. Despite being a cartoon, it does show how some people perceive other people, nations, and economies by emphasising various parts of their lives, traditions and culture. Here is some of his work, which can easily offend, if seen by people from the PIIGS nations.
