Canva: Free Online Digital Illustration

I had a really nice email from Adelbert Bola,
Community Outreach Specialist at Canva.

He had read my post about FotoJet and wanted to remind me of the usefulness of Canva, a digital illustration app that many authors--including me--use.

Since I like Canva and agree with Adelbert that it's very useful, I asked for a guest post.

I'm happy to present the information and great graphics I received.
