FAQ–Why Aren’t Illustrators Extinct?
Posted by Janet on February 21, 2008
The number one question I get from people is “why do we still need illustrators if we can take photographs?” I’m sure many of my readers who are illustrators also get the same question more often than they care to explain. Once I was sitting next to a physicist on an airplane and was just not able to explain to him why the world still needs us. With every explanation I had, he was able to come up with a technology that should supposedly terminate our species. Before I post responses on my FAQ page, I’d like to get some input on what you think the role of scientific and medical illustrators are in today’s world and how it might be changing. Please post responses in the comments section.
