Comics and graphic novels
Comics use images for expression of creative ideas in combination with texts and other
visually appealing materials. Image panels are placed side by side for producing striking
effect. Textual cues like captions, balloons with speech of characters embedded in them, as
well as onomatopoeia signify the interaction among comical characters and certain sound
effects. Image panel sizing and arrangement allow for imparting momentum to narration.
Books and publications
Illustration for books can be created in versatile manner and is contingent
on the way the author visualizes the book’s subjects and its interaction
with other elements. The focus is on making readers commit their
attention on the book, so the journey starts with the cover of the book
which carries a visual hint to what lies inside.
Here, the illustrations are deployed for grabbing your eyeballs and
conveying an indelible impression to you. You would be spontaneously
reminded about a particular brand when the image crosses your mind.
