Jamaica’s greatest satirist, Clovis Brown has kept his fingers on the pulse of the Jamaican public for nearly 20 years with his daily cartoons in the Jamaica Observer. Brown goes after Jamaican politicians—and dancehall artists— with a vengeance, taking them to task on a daily basis, for what he sees as inept and corrupt behavior in a declining society. Wielding his stylus like an axe, he tackles the social issue of the day, which usually leaves the masses cheering him on, and the offended party(s) threatening to take him to court. —Sherman Escoffery
