They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. I happen to think they’re wrong, but I still think good illustrations are valuable for understanding difficult concepts. And philosophy is full of those.

Confusing Correlation with Causation
The Slippery Slope Argument
Check out the rest of the book for some interesting discussions of bad arguments.
The second set of pictures comes from a project called Philographics, which uses simple geometric designs to illustrate philosophical concepts. Here are a couple of the more interesting designs.
If you’re looking for some interesting illustrations to use for teaching and/or learning philosophy, these are definitely a couple of resources you should check out.
