Davide Bonazzi is an illustrator from Bologna, Italy, who creates thought-provoking images about modern-day issues. He is a full-time illustrator and has been drawing since he was a child. "In a way, I've created illustrations from childhood, from the moment I could hold a pencil," he told Bored Panda.

The artist combines digital media with the textures of real objects to give his images a unique signature look. When asked about inspiration, he said: "I think inspiration is overrated: the most important thing in order to get good ideas is concentration. Illustrators don’t have time to wait for an inspiration, they have to find it. The more I rack my brain and stay focused on the subject I have to illustrate, the better ideas I get. This said it’s plenty of things that inspire me in everyday life, especially related to visual arts, films, graphic novels, documentaries, etc."

"The thing I like the most is the possibility of drawing all day long, working on thrilling projects and sharpening my skills every day. I feel lucky to have turned my lifelong passion into a real job. I know this may sound strange to many people, but illustration makes me feel alive and happy!"

Below you can find some of his surreal illustrations. Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments.

Did The Cold War Ever Really End?

Davide Bonazzi Report

Bobbi Newell 7 months ago

The crossed fingers behind their backs signify King's X. The gesture was originally meant as a sign of truce or immunity, but has warped to mean immunity from keeping one's word. All sides talk about putting a freeze on the arms race, but secretly intend to keep right on producing weapons.
