A short pictorial satire on IMO and bureaucratic power
The world, it seems, has become too serious because of COVID-19. So for a change, I thought I would come up with a lighthearted post about the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
For this satirical piece, I have used some drawings by Edward Lear (1812–1888), the English artist, illustrator and author best known for his books of nonsensical verse. Lear’s drawings are as silly and absurd as his limericks. But they make perfect sense when placed in the context of bureaucratic power as it has been exercised by the IMO.
