"From the visceral to the wimsical and the absurd to the oblique, illustration is proving an interesting portal from which to investigate new strategies for the arts. The orchestrating of images and words to tell stories, educate, agitate, inform, amuse, persuade and entertain is taking place in the craks between subject disciplines and the art and desing words. It is within this area that new visual languages and pratices have challenged tradicional perceptions and hierarchies".
