Cartooning for people who can't draw

You don't need drawing skills to create powerful images that amplify your content

Simple drawing of a house

Across the social web, organizations are discovering the power that the right image - including an apt cartoon - can lend to your content. And there’s never been a better time to not be able to draw.

Okay, let me back up. It’s not that it doesn’t matter how well something is drawn, or how visually attractive it is. If you’re great at drawing, or you have a good eye for color and composition, you’re way ahead of the game — all other things being equal.
