First, Why Illustration?

In a world of instant digital photography, one may ask, why pay an illustrator when I can just take a picture?

Some concepts are abstract and require an illustration
(or lots and lots of words, but why burden your audience?) 

Illustrations reproduce better in print

In a world of instant digital photography, why look like everybody else?
A good illustration provides a unique, fresh and professional look to your project.

and many more reasons…
