An illustration is defined as a decoration, interpretation or visual explanation. It is a hugely versatile art form which blurs the distinction between different art forms, with contemporary artists drawing influence from multiple sources, such as graffiti, fashion, computer games and animation. Today many illustrative artists work digitally, either with photography or computer programmes.
Photography was invented in the 1800s and allows artists to visually illustrate a thought by capturing a subject or scene and produce a visual record. However, developments in technology now allow artists to manipulate images using programmes such as Photoshop, meaning that today, photographers have more artistic control over the final image and point they want to illustrate.
