Illustration has been around for a long time and since the appearance of digital programs, this art form (if we can call it that) has diversified itself and helped open the door for new creative jobs in many different areas (Internet, television, publishing, medicine, sciences, newspapers, theatre, magazines, cinema, corporations, advertising, etc). The fast paced evolution of new technologies has provided us with extraordinary tools for exploring visual creations unimaginable two decades ago. This extraordinary and magical technology at our disposal is indispensable now and for future illustrators. But in spite of all this, we must not forget what is required for a solid artistic base - drawing. The art of illustration requires, from the first sketch on paper - to the digital elaboration and printing, a solid drawing education and a concrete reflexive depth receptive to symbols and cultural archetypes that surround us. The three objectives of any graphic artist today are: to be able to tap into that broad contemporary iconographic repertory and develop a personal style of expression, become a talented draughtsman, and finally to train a special intelligence for transforming original ideas and symbols into visual metaphors.
