Illustration is the language of the visual storyteller, and a form of visual communication, with applications ranging from the simple didactic to the most sophisticated conceptual images. It creatively combines sight and insight, drawing from both our visual legacy, and knowledge of content and context, to create images that instruct, inform, entertain and challenge.
