Again, Tulips Shall Grow

The above drawing is by Iranian cartoonist Hadi Heidari, who was released on Sunday along with political activists Mohammad Shafii and Alireza Taheri, after a week in prison. This was not the cartoonist’s first experience of prison. A fourth activist detained at the same time, Fatemeh Arabsorkhi, has still not been released.

Again, Tulips Shall Grow.

More from United4Iran on an execution postponed, and from EA on two executions carried out.

That is a stunning cartoon. It is good to see a second talented Heidari to go with my friend Elahe

Many thanks Brandi. And the work by both yourself and your father on your blog, is lovely - reminds me a little of the ceramic work of my neighbor Laurance.
