23 Deep, Thought-Provoking Illustrations That Make You Reflect About Life

Interesting and intriguing – especially #6!

Art can be a powerful tool in conveying certain messages. If done right, they can even be deep and thought-provoking. Just go flip the pages of a newspaper, for example, and check out the editorial cartoon section. Such illustrations, which are often political in nature, provides commentary from an artist relying more on the visuals and using very minimal words – or none at all.

As you can probably figure out from that, cartooning is no easy thing and it takes the best of the best to come up with effective illustrations. That’s why we couldn’t help but admire the brilliant talent of Angel Boligán Corbo.

Originally from Cuba, Angel Boligán Corbo is a cartoonist now based in Mexico City, Mexico.

According to a website, Boligàn draws for the El Universal newspaper as well as satirical magazines Conozca Mas and El Chamuco. He’s also the recipient of over 130 awards in cartoon competitions across the world.
