Emmanuel “Manu” Letouzé is a French-born, Brooklyn-based, freelance ‘socio-political’ cartoonist who also works as an economist for the United Nations and pursues his PhD at the University of California, Berkeley. Originally from Brittany, France, Manu moved to New York City from Hanoi, Vietnam, in 2004 to attend Columbia University as a Fulbright fellow. There, he started drawing political cartoons in English rather than in his native French, which he had previously done for several years as an editorial cartoonist while studying at Sciences Po in Paris. He is now contributing cartoons to various publications, including (in English) StuffExpatAidWorkersLike.com, a satirical blog on the world of NGOs, UN, etc., and (in French) Rue89.com, France’s leading news website, where he holds a blog. His current projects include comic strips on New York City seen through the eyes of a European, on the UN, and on the life of a father of one-year old twin girls.
