Khalid Albaih Featured by the New York Times


CM member Khalid Albaih, a Sudanese cartoonist currently living in Qatar, and one of the prominent young voices in the Arab World, is featured by the New York Times:

The interview is accompanied by a video showing how Khalid works, reminiscent of our Behind-the-Scenes series (but made with an NYT budget). Additionaly, they have posted a number of his cartoons with audio-commentary by Khalid.
