The Family Law Doll House

One of the things I enjoy most is creating illustrations for magazine and newspaper articles. The opportunity to represent the article by the use of  metaphors or the odd analogy is a challenge I take great delight in solving. Fortunately most editorial work allow the illustrator a free reign and not to be too literal, this helps create intriguing imagery that is eye-catching encouraging engagement with the reader or viewer and with the content preventing the audience from turning the page. This applies to articles published on the web too and more and more content developers are discovering that using illustration as a tool to gain engagement with their content, more are also are realising that individual bespoke images take this to a more effective level.
