Summary... header image

Illustration is a powerful visual language which defies boundaries and extends across all art and design disciplines. Traditionally it was mainly associated with bringing words to life in the publishing industries and in advertising campaigns, however, through the explosion of new technologies and media, illustration has never enjoyed such currency and is now encountered in every aspect of our daily lives.
