Illustration is a broad term for visual storytelling. It can be executed in any media, and serves a variety of purposes. As our culture has become more visually oriented the job of the illustrator has never been more important. From images in storybooks, to online media, to newspapers, illustrators help us process information about the world and activate our imaginations.
