Illustrare: v. 1. to illuminate. 2. to poke at sacred cows

nomiyaaboutPictures saturate our world. At times overwhelming, yet undeniably the most effective global communication currency. The task of the illustrator is to (quickly) create clever concise images that cut through the visual noise. To stand alone or to support text. Images must initially engage the target audience in whatever country or community they originate, but increasingly they also demand cross-cultural accessibility.

Style can adapt to content. To engage immediately, to make the viewer think and feel in a fresh unexpected way – hopefully to stay with them for some time after.

Illustration without an idea is decoration.

(..and the fish above left is of course, a red herring)
