Illustration

January 3, 2014 § Leave a comment

The word ‘illustration’ is one I don’t actually like a lot; it suggests something derivative, a visual elaboration of an idea governed by text. In ‘fine arts’ discourse you often find the term used in a derogatory sense, almost in opposition to serious drawing or painting; something is ‘mere illustration’. That is, somewhat slavish or incapable of self-contained meaning; it can only be descriptive.

~Shaun Tan

That’s why I prefer to use word “drawing” rather than “illustration”. Illustration is a complement. Why you born into this world to make complement for others work?
