The term ‘illustration‘ comes from the Latin word illustra’tio, illu’stro meaning enlighten, irradiate. In sense it an attempt at provocation. It is an invitation to an another world. A world twice removed from reality. It is at the same time real and unreal. Sometimes it triggers a memory and at other times it takes one on a trip to building newer ships to sail to brave new worlds. It is a story delineated in lines. It is a tale of the known and the unknown, the familiar and the strange.
Illustration illuminates. It enlightens.
