An illustration is a displayed visualization form presented as a drawing, painting, photograph or other work of art that is created to elucidate or dictate sensual information (such as a story, poem or newspaper article) by providing a visual representation graphically.

Am loving illustration as a form of Graphic Design and visual representation. Being able to use traditional hand made art materials to communicate to a broad audience is an interesting way to transcend the traditonal digital world of design into a more appealing and personable approach.

Teaching students the value of the handmade is becoming more important in my teaching practice as we shift into a more digitally savvy generation of designers.

By capturing the essence of the crafts and combining them with new technologies the world of illustration has the potential to change.
