An illustrator who goes by the name ICSD on social media got our attention for illustrating good news that is happening in the world right now. The Instagram account where you can follow these illustrations is called Weekly Graphic News and it’s approaching 2,000 followers.
“A mix of passion for editorial art and interest in journalism led me to this idea, upon finding that some very interesting stories get lost in our feed because they have an ordinary cover picture, like a stock image that doesn’t say much. That’s because some subjects are too abstract to be photographed, so editors pair them with something neutral and insipid,” the artist told Bored Panda.
Since most of us spend our days consuming news and other content on social media, their idea was to create a visual editorial approach and highlight the good things that are happening. As you’ve probably noticed, bad news attracts people’s attention most of the time, and this account wants to change that. Scroll down to see some of the recent illustrations and follow ICSD on Instagram for more similar content in the future.
