Charlie Hebdo artist Luz will cease to draw Muhammad? Fellow cartoonists react
by Michael Cavna
Hand in hand with the fierce freedom to draw, of course, comes the freedom to put down your hand and not draw.
And when it comes to rendering the Islamic prophet Muhammad, the cartoonist Luz says today that he is resting his pen.
It was Luz, the nom-de-toon of Renald Luzier, who in January drew an "apologetic" Muhammad on the cover of Charlie Hebdo, the week after the attack on the French satirical magazine's Paris offices. The massacre by Islamic extremists left 12 dead at the site, including five of Luz's cartooning colleagues.
