Illustration is a hammer*

...Why?(Find out.)

eyra recognizes that illustration is a hammer*. Illustration, like a hammer, has functionality - it is a visual means of communication for a large audience.

Can a hammer be beautiful? Some think so. And, like a hammer, illustration is also concerned with aesthetics and utilizes techniques that we also think of as fine art.

*Many thanks to D.B. Dowd for the excellent metaphor.

eyra is committed to furthering the ongoing dialogue of illustration through writing.
