Have you ever stopped to think about the world and its problems or why things are this way or not? I'm sure you have.

My name is Daniel Garcia, and I'm a professional illustrator working regularly with several publications and companies in more than 20 countries. Mostly I do conceptual work, where it's important to have a strong idea and create an illustration that explains quickly and visually things from politics to culture, technology to the environment. While society can be fair and unfair in many ways, in the end, it's just talking about people and their issues and asking difficult questions.

I’m always producing new stuff, and after the success of my previous posts on Bored Panda, I’ve decided to show you another selection of my best works to show some of the problems afflicting the world.

So what about you? What are your questions? Do these illustrations make you think or they don't do anything for you? Please let me know! Click here and here to see my previous articles!

The main goal of my illustrations is first to cause a reaction in the viewer, but most importantly, to make the person think about the different issues depicted and ask themselves difficult questions. They don’t have to agree with it, but if it can inspire some people or some change, it’s already a win!

I actually prefer people being more respectful about personal space since the virus. It's been harder finding a job though.

I studied architecture, but I decided to follow my passion and become an illustrator/cartoonist. I’m a self-learned artist, I had no formal training so it was (and it’s still) a long process of discovering and improving myself and my work. As a child, I was an avid reader of comic books, especially European ones. Visual storytelling has always fascinated me and I got into art naturally. I started drawing for fun and it developed over the years into working professionally as an illustrator.

Mostly, I do conceptual work for different publications, where it's important to create an illustration that explains quickly and visually an idea. Sometimes the concept comes to me immediately, but sometimes it takes a few long hard thinking days.

I cover many things from politics to culture, technology to the environment. While society can be fair and unfair in many ways, in the end, it's just talking about people and their issues. My style is realistic and based on a traditional illustration with digital coloring. And my humor is around 50cm long, 5kg, orange fur… no wait, that’s my cat.

I hate to say it, but I called it twenty years ago. Just like with Vietnam, America never has any plans or ideas of hiw to win a war and no attention span. Well invade and f**k around until we got bored, it's too expensive, too unpopular, whatever... then we leave and act like the resulting chaos is both surprising and unusual l.

People usually think art is a matter of talent. It’s not. Practicing every day for years and loving it is what makes you better. But if you don’t love it enough or if you are not persistent, you’ll end up quitting sooner or later.

You can’t fix all the problems in the world, but creating a fairer, better society and better living conditions for everyone is possible. All the rights we have today had to be fought for in the past. Remember that and do your part!

A lot of people don't realize this. It's so bad in the U.S. that enough doctors hold the false belief that Black people feel less pain than white people that Black people are systemically under-prescribed pain medication. Here's the study if anyone wants to read more: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4843483/

As I expected, no comments here. What sort of a world do we live in where we are too afraid to have opinions on something as important as this because of the hatred and personal attacks that we risk by doing so?

I only sort of agree with those who say it’s about income. In my household it’s about what’s quickest and easiest because time is the resource we have the least amount of right there next to our income.
