25 ILLUSTRATIONS THAT DEPICT CURRENT ISSUES

READING TIME: 2 MIN

“An image is worth a thousand words”. We´ve seen them, we know when we see an incredible image that speaks to us like words could never do.

John Holcroft is a British artist.  Inspired by the 1950s adverts, his illustrations send over a thousand words through creativity, wittiness and analogies, creating a representation of current issues regarding modern society.

Their simplicity and creativity have a profound way of explaining  complex issues that need to be addressed.

I could write over a million words about this, but his illustrations do all the talking.

It´s hard to choose a favorite one since they  are all amazing and represent different problems, but if I´d have to pick, I´d choose  4, 10, 17 and 24. Which one did you like best?
