Illustration: A Theoretical and Contextual Perspective

Overview

Used to be that illustrators were told how and what to draw, and they drew it, and that was that. Today, however, illustrators are the authority; they are the originators of the ideas and the images that convey those ideas, both in fiction and in nonfiction. They need to be educated, socially and culturally aware communicators, with knowledge, understanding, and insight.

    Illustration

    What a fascinating read! This book places emphasis on illustration's global community; highlighting one's need to be socially and culturally aware by combining one's practical skills with this awareness. The internet and thus, larger audiences means the illustrator has an increased opportunity for their work to be seen and valued. The author combines this discussion with a great array of images; the diversity of examples (from cough syrup bottles to Percival's medical illustrations) and the focus of the discussion complement one another.
    The author discusses how to answer a brief drawing from his own experience, which feels authentic and is of great use. The text flows and entices while maintaining structure and logic in its content. This means the reader never feels over-crowded with information. The tasks and projects at the end of the book are really useful, and it is handy that they are at the back of the book because you can flick to them throughout reading, at the end, or entirely separately from reading the text. Over all, a thought provoking read which includes practical information useful to academic study.
