76 Thought-Provoking Illustrations About Modern Day Issues That You’ll Need To Look Twice To Understand
Davide Bonazzi is an illustrator from Bologna, Italy, who creates thought-provoking images about modern-day social 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 drawing ideas a unique signature look. When asked about inspiration, he said: "I think inspiration is overrated: the most important thing in order to get good creative ideas is concentration. Illustrators don’t have time to wait for 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 these cartoon drawings make me feel alive and happy!"
