Drawn from life: How to inspire social media audiences with the power of illustration

When illustrated posts on your social media feed help you achieve thousands of interactions, you’ll be amazed by how effective this age-old form of visual storytelling is in encouraging your online audience to look, feel and act. The earliest recorded illustrations appear in the cave paintings in 15,000 B.C, and they’re still used in our digital age to tackle local and global issues.
