ILLUSTRATION - The vital spirit, exploring emotion and the creative force of a person

Illustration is a particular branch of art that arose centuries ago in the service of storytelling and the printed word. Early manuscripts and books needed visual images that were provided by artists. Today this work has grown into a mass market print and digital world of books, magazines, advertising, and online communication that is enormous. At the foundation though, still lies the work of the work of artist illustrators who create the images that serve to illustrate the stories we tell.
