These Illustrations Show What’s Wrong With The Modern Society

Coronavirus Depression

According to Daniel Garcia: “Have you ever stopped to think about the world and its problems or why things are this way or not? I’m sure you have.

My name is Daniel Garcia, and I’m a professional illustrator working regularly with several publications and companies in more than 20 countries. Mostly I do conceptual work, where it’s important to have a strong idea and create an illustration that explains quickly and visually things from politics to culture, technology to the environment. While society can be fair and unfair in many ways, in the end, it’s just talking about people and their issues and asking difficult questions.

I’m always producing new stuff, and after the success of my previous posts on Bored Panda, I’ve decided to show you another selection of my best works to show some of the problems afflicting the world.

So what about you? What are your questions? Do these illustrations make you think or they don’t do anything for you? Please let me know!”

Expensive Medicine

“The main goal of my illustrations is first to cause a reaction in the viewer, but most importantly, to make the person think about the different issues depicted and ask themselves difficult questions. They don’t have to agree with it, but if it can inspire some people or some change, it’s already a win!”

The Shadow On The Wall

“I studied architecture, but I decided to follow my passion and become an illustrator/cartoonist. I’m a self-learned artist, I had no formal training so it was (and it’s still) a long process of discovering and improving myself and my work. As a child, I was an avid reader of comic books, especially European ones. Visual storytelling has always fascinated me and I got into art naturally. I started drawing for fun and it developed over the years into working professionally as an illustrator.”

Violence Against Transgender

“Mostly, I do conceptual work for different publications, where it’s important to create an illustration that explains quickly and visually an idea. Sometimes the concept comes to me immediately, but sometimes it takes a few long hard thinking days.”

Vaccine

“I cover many things from politics to culture, technology to the environment. While society can be fair and unfair in many ways, in the end, it’s just talking about people and their issues. My style is realistic and based on a traditional illustration with digital coloring. And my humor is around 50cm long, 5kg, orange fur… no wait, that’s my cat.”

Time To Save The Earth Is Running Out

“I started working professionally in 2014 and nowadays I collaborate with several publications and companies in more than 20 countries. I don’t know how long I’ll be doing it but as long as I love what I do, I’ll keep going forward.”

Birth Of A Fascist

“People usually think art is a matter of talent. It’s not. Practicing every day for years and loving it is what makes you better. But if you don’t love it enough or if you are not persistent, you’ll end up quitting sooner or later.”

Mending The Flag

“You can’t fix all the problems in the world, but creating a fairer, better society and better living conditions for everyone is possible. All the rights we have today had to be fought for in the past. Remember that and do your part!”

光吸収率99.995%、世界で最も黒い物質が発見される

世界で一番黒い物質が発見された?


光吸収率【99.995%】の世界で最も黒い物質が米マサチューセッツ工科大学(MIT)の研究チームや上海交通大学の研究チームによって発見されました。
これまで最も黒い物質とされてきたベンタブラックの10倍にあたる99.995%以上の光をあらゆる角度から吸収するようです。


電気的特性や熱的特性の高い【カーボンナノチューブ】をアルミホイル上で成長させるにあたり課題だったのはアルミニウムが空気にさらされると酸化層がアルミニウムを覆ってしまい電気や熱を遮断してしまうことであったので、研究チームはアルミホイルを塩水につけることで酸化層を除去することに成功しました。
さらにアルミホイルを無酸素環境に移して再酸化を防ぎ化学気相成長(CVD)法によりオーブンに入れてカーボンナノチューブを成長させた。
酸化層を除去することで、より低い温度でカーボンナノチューブを成長させました。そうする事で電気的特性や熱的特性が著しく高まっただけでなく、明らかに黒くなったみたいです。

Artist Illustrated 30 Mermaids For Two Years And Here Is The Eerie Yet Whimsical Result

My Zero Mermaid

According to Jana Heidersdorf: “About two years ago I decided to start a weekly drawing challenge for myself: To do one mermaid every week until I have a full 100 (and then make them into a book, but that’s another story). As I am getting oh so very close to my goal (I’m at mermaid drawing number 97 right now!)

All these cool drawings are created with graphite pencils and colored digitally. If some textures look like watercolor to you, though, then you are not wrong. Throughout the series, my process has undergone some slight changes, including drenching the mermaid images with liquid paint once in a while.

‘But why mermaids’, you ask. ‘Are there not enough of them on the Internet already? Them mythological creatures with their luxurious hair and splishy-splashy tails?’

That is a good question, friend. I find mermaids a fascinating subject exactly because they are ubiquitous in fairytales and pop culture. We all have a certain image ingrained in our minds when we think of what a mermaid looks like, so it’s not only a challenge to come up with new drawing ideas, but it is more fun since we all have some common ground to start from.”

Serra Lubrica

This mermaid is using her extraordinarily long tail to shield herself from outward influences and danger. Slime glands render her unappealing and poisonous to predators.

Serra Medusa

Don’t be fooled by this mermaid’s delicate appearance. Her translucent tentacles are reaching far, keeping predators and nosy scientists at arm’s length. Her touch can cause strong inflammations and death, earning her the name ‘Black Widow of the Deep’.

Sedna Inanis

This solitary spirit haunts the Northern Pacific and Arctic Ocean, restlessly collecting and stealing the souls of every animate creature she comes across, eternally trying to fill the void of her own existence.

Sirena Sancta

The locations of this species’ sightings vary widely. The appearances never seem to last more than a few seconds and it has yet to be determined whether we are dealing with a single or multiple entities. Her ethereal and fleeting shape has led to the formation of the Siren’s Church, a cult worshipping her as the embodiment of an angel.

Serra Agnatha

This sea floor dwelling mermaid has developed excellent tools for both feeding and protecting herself. Slime producing glands make her unappealing to predators, while her toothy mouth comes in handy when dismantling and eating her prey.

Serra Communia

It is highly improbable for this mermaid to survive on her own. At some point she has joined forces with a so far unidentified species of fish, forming what appears to be one creature. Evolution has taken on strange forms and this is surely one of them.

Sirena Quieto

This mermaid is taking playing dead to a whole new level. Her skeletal, weathered appearance, cold blood, slow metabolism and barely detectable heartbeat will fool predators and prey alike.

Serra Monoceras

Somewhere between humanity believing in unicorns and denying the existence of narwhals, this shy creature has been roaming the depths of the Arctic Sea for centuries, unnoticed and undisturbed.

Serra Papilio

Even though sightings have been rare, several varieties of this colourful species have been spotted mingling with the flora and fauna of the coral reefs close to the Chagos Archipelago. Nolarger than the span of a hand, this mermaid is easily mistaken for a brightly coloured fish or sea anemone.

Serra Hortus

Half plant, half mammal: This mermaid is an eco system in herself.

Serra Teuthida

This creature will make use of a heavy fog of ink to protect herself from curious eyes as well as to distract and poison her prey.

Serra Chlorophyta

The hair of this mermaid produces a steady amount of oxygen in the water around her while also serving as a filter for small organisms.

Gorgóna Gorgóna

This mermaid seems to have sprung directly from Greek mythology, living in perfect symbiosis with snakelike water creatures that have attached themselves to her head. Sharing prey and predators alike, they are an effective combination.

Serra Ramosa

Places where these creatures gather are known as ‘siren forests’ due to this mermaid’s arboreal appearance. Her branches form a vital part of her life support system, supplying her with oxygen and nutritions.

Fiji Mermaid

The discovery of a living specimen begs the question whether Barnum’s mummified body of a mermaid, long believed to be nothing but a hoax just as the copies which were in circulation after its destruction in the 1860s, may actually have been the real thing.

Sirena Velum

The dark bride of the ocean has a carnivorous approach to life, haunting the deep seas and feeding on smaller lifeforms.

Sirena Volatus

So far it remains questionable whether this sea creature is actually capable of flight. Instead she has been observed to use her wings for both protection and communicational purposes.

Serra Sphyrna

Roaming the depths of the Indian Ocean, this mermaid is a skilled hunter and surprisingly nimble swimmer. Usually eager to avoid humans, she is only a danger to especially yummy stingrays.

Serra Crusta

The value of this mermaid’s eyes has only been increasing with the steady decline of her species in recent years. Her shells may have proven to offer solid protection against natural predators, but lack effectivity in the face of human greed.

Serra Pellucidum

Due to her seemingly crystalline body, this elusive species of mermaid is hard to spot amidst the darkness of the deep sea.

Sirena Divisa

So far this is the only species of mermaid known to have developed two tails.

Gorgóna Eucrante

Observed only in this rare Mediterranean variety of mermaid, research still has to disclose whether this curious application of hair tresses is biologically determined or a habit acquired over time due to circumstance.

Serra Servata

This creature keeps a living supply of smaller fish and marine animals in a balloon like cavity, enabling her to travel long distances regardless of hunting opportunities and food availability.

Sirena Lucerna

Once in a while this deep sea creature rises to the surface to lure unassuming swimmers astray with its bioluminescent glow.

Serra Teneris

There is no explanation as to what keeps this delicate mermaid alive or even keep its form. In groups of up to 200 individuals these beautiful creatures drift aimlessly through our oceans, leaving behind nothing but questions.

Serra Vela

This mermaid’s dorsal fins have developed in a unique way that enables them to catch the wind similarly to a sail. Thus she travels both underwater and adrift on the surface.

Sirena Somniculosus

This mermaid has been responsible for the fates of a great many seduced sailors. Her tail is mimicking the shape of a human body to lure in prey. Having succeeded in her ventures she will then proceed to feed on the naive soul trying to mate with her behind. It is unknown why this species seems to have specialized in the consumption of human males.

Serra Gladius

This mermaid knows how to keep unwanted company at nose length.

Serra Macrourida

This arctic deep sea mermaid dies shortly after spawning. Her corpse then serves as protection and food for her eggs and hatchlings.

“A Nature Unknown”: Couple Created a Series of Illustrations Inspired By the Outdoors

Kourtney and Richard Jossy met at Portland State University where they both received bachelors in fine arts. After graduating they began collaborating on illustration projects, married, and started a nature unknown – a personal illustration series inspired by their shared interests in the outdoors, the unexplained, and introversion.

Although they don’t have a big following, their art is definitely worth checking out. I really enjoyed browsing through their Instagram page and we believe that you will enjoy it, too.
