“I thought we needed a message for peace,” Jullien told CNN of his real-time inspiration: the Eiffel Tower standing as the center standard in the peace logo.
He posted on his social-media accounts the very evening of the attacks — in what he called “a heartfelt reaction” — and the simple and emotionally direct image went viral, generating comments by the thousands as it crossed different social-media platforms.
Here are some other illustrations that responded with resonance to the attacks in a gallery that will update on an ongoing basis:

Well, this time around, Charlie Hebdo didn’t draw Muhammad — staying true to its announced intentions. Instead, 10 months after a dozen people (including five of its cartoonists) were killed by extremists in an attack on Hebdo’s Paris offices, the satirical publication has responded to Friday’s terrorist attacks with a cover (by Coco, the nom-de-toon of artist Corinne Rey) true to the paper’s history of visual defiance. The image: A man riddled with bullet holes in stock cartoon fashion. The in-your-face caption: “Ils ont les armes. On les emmerde, on a le champagne!” (or: “They have weapons. F—k them. We have champagne!”).
