Art vs. Illustration

Das hier scheint mir ein recht lesenswerter Artikel zum Thema Illustration zu sein: The process behind good illustration.

The type of art we call illustration has a two-fold purpose. The first and foremost is that it speaks to you. It tells you a story, visually represents an idea, conveys a message, delivers information, offers a visual accompaniment to text, etc. — it does something. Second, but certainly not least, it presents that “something” in an interesting and engaging fashion.

Es handelt sich hierbei um den ersten Teil. Bin schon auf Teil Zwei gespannt.
