Can illustration change the world?


Since my first affair with illustration started, I was always intrigued by the power illustration carries and can have upon an audience or, in fact, the world.

Looking at how it can be used to sway our decision-making, opinion-forming, the way we act and what we believe, thus showing just how we are manipulated by illustration and bringing examples to attention that prove my point.

Examples such as children’s books and how they sway the perspective of the world and introduce stereotypes via visual aid from an early age. Satirical cartoons and messages in editorial publications. Lastly mentioning the effects of illustration in the use of propaganda and political communication with links to their respective target audiences.
