Text: Walt Handelsman. “Gorbachev Legacy.”
Some elements of this text to consider:
- The cartoon refers to Putin’s refusal to give Gorbachev a state funeral as well as Putin’s refusal to attend the funeral.
- The tank moves diagonally across the cartoon from bottom left to top right which emphasizes movement / speed.
- The bottom left of the cartoon has a darker shade of green while the right side of the cartoon (where the tank is) has less appealing tones.
