Illustration - converting practical concept into visual head turner
A good freelance illustrator will be an effective all-rounder. As comfortable working with different illustration techniques, be these traditional methods like pen and ink, watercolour and oils, as he or she is working with digital illustrations on-screen created using graphics tablets and sophisticated illustration software. A brilliant illustration is the creative output of an illustrator who not only has the creative flair and practical skills demanded, but can also channel these to closely match a design brief.
From product cutaways to inspiring artwork
Wey River freelance illustrators, given the chance, will eagerly want to demonstrate the fact that they are both good and brilliant, for that way they'll earn enough brownie points for one of their fellow freelancers to pop by their studio with an emergency delivery of chocolate coated dunking biscuits. It can be a lonely business...
If your specific need is to provide a 'how-to' diagram related to using a product or a technical cut-away drawing of a component you will need an illustrator. It can get more exciting than that of course once an illustrator is commissioned to create an original artwork for a magazine feature or book cover, an advertisement or poster, or to complement general graphic and web design projects.
