Boris Yefimov Drawn Out of the Picture

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

Russian political cartoonist Boris Yefimov, who was despised by German Nazi despot Adolf Hitler, has died in Moscow at the age of 109, his family says. During his career, Yefimov created an estimated 70,000 drawings that all worked toward improving his native land, The New York Times reported Sunday. Despite Hitler vowing to shoot the cartoonist on sight due to his cartoons about the Nazi leader, Yefimov enjoyed a successful art career in Russia for 70 years.

Yefimov once said in an interview that he was dedicated to covering the political world through his drawings.

"When you are a political cartoonist, you have to keep pace with politics," he said.
