I love illustration. Although illustration possesses few secure signposts pointing the way to success, it offers enormous freedom – of medium, style, and content. And on a societal level, illustrators are expected to be the seers of contemporary culture. They pick at the many threads making up our various cultures – political, social, economic, artistic, etc., – and weave them into challenging images that are both read and responded to. Illustrators have the freedom to simultaneously consume and create, and their work does exactly the same. It is a profession that draws from and adds to our cultures, with the potential to effect immense change.
