Compared to photography, an illustration can more easily
portray the fantastic and the abstract:
things that aren't real.
can create an imaginary landscape for the mind
to roam through. Symbols can be easily manipulated,
aspect is mood. While photos of real people can
us identify with them, an
illustration can make us feel a
more complex set of emotions...
even a simpler emotion. Think cartoons. Comics.
