Hexie Farm is the name of a series of political cartoons created by an anonymous Chinese cartoonist under the pen name Crazy Crab. His drawings quickly gained a large following online for their unique blend of satire, wit, and razor-sharp commentary on current events in China and beyond. Crazy Crab uses visual references to traditional fairy tales, George Orwell, and political propaganda slogans to critique China’s leadership. His work has appeared in publications such as Isunaffairs, Trouw, Cartoon Movement, and PRI. The book, Crazy Crab's Chinese Dream, is edited by Anne Henochowicz, with text by Sophie Beach.
