Recommended: The Sudanese Optimist

In witty discussions, ranging from culture to current events, The Sudanese Optimist is a clever blog from a Sudania’s perspective.

Her latest post introduces Sudanese cartoonist Khalid Wad Albaih. The Sudanese Optimist writes,

The first thing you need to know about Khalid Wad Albaih is that he is über cool. The second thing is that he reads the Sudanese Optimist. Correlation? I think yes. Khalid is the genius behind some ingenious cartoons about current events, with many cartoons focused on Sudanese issues. His cartoons, cleverly dubbed “Khartoons” (Khalid+Khartoum+Cartoon) are always on point, powerful, and thought provoking. Some will make you laugh, some will make you tear up (especially if you’re a drama queen) and some will make you think: “How on earth did he think of that?” and admittedly, some will make you think “why didn’t I think of that dammit?”

Khalid’s artwork has been featured on Aljazeera amongst other news outlets such as Channel 4 News England, Brazil daily newspaper, and AlSudani daily news paper.  The well known Egyptian art critic Salah Bisar featured Khalid in articles published in 7awa and Masr Alyoum. His work can be found all over facebook and Twitter profiles, where many people found that his Khartoons were perfect expressions of their opinions and emotions. I have first come across his work when many of my facebook friends put up a catching profile photo shown here. One person had put up a link to the rest of his cartoons and I found myself very intrigued by them…”
