Community of Illustrators
Illustration is a vital part of design, and as an illustrator and graphic designer I have found there is a lack of understanding about illustration, what illustrators do, best practices, and ethics. The challenges that need to be addressed are broad and my hope is for open dialog with colleges and universities, design and marketing agencies, and large businesses via The Illustration League.
Because of these needs, TIL board members and myself wrote an article, "Building An Illustration Community” for Rapid Growth Media. The article is a basic introduction on who illustrators are, their challenges, and most importantly the need for an illustration community.
Currently, TIL is working towards creating a more grounded, whole version of ourselves. We will continue to evolve and grow based on the needs of our community.
