The Eye of the Whale

The Swiss cartoonist, illustrator and storyteller Tom Tirabosco (1966) is not only known for his comic albums, children’s book author and contributions in magazines and newspapers, but also his concern about the ecosystem.

He is in particular worried about the global fauna and flora system on land and in the seas.

Tirabosco symbolized his worry by his drawings and music. He also wrote a story through the eye of a whale on the occasion of the ‘Continents of the Whale’ event at the Cartoomuseum in Basel.

He showed the cruelty of the whale hunt.
