Illustration, or narrative art, is about using visual language to tell a story in the most beautiful, compelling way possible. . . in under a second. It does not exist to merely fill a hole in a page of type. Rather , its purpose is communicate clearly while engaging the eye, the mind and heart of the viewer. If successful, it has the potential for rewarding the viewer with a fresh, illuminating, even transcendent experience.
