Cartoonists in the News: Larry Feign

Larry Feign, who gained international fame for his comic feature Lily Wong, was asked by CNN on his opinion of how Hong Kong is fairing 10 years after Britain handed over control of the city to China.

“Everyone always thought Hong Kong would influence China,” Feign said. “What really surprises me and a lot of people I know is that Hong Kong has become so dependent on China than the other way around,” Feign said, comparing Hong Kong to a male angler that attaches to the larger female and atrophies. “Kowtowing to China — it’s the antithesis of what this place is about.”
