PBS Off Book explores the world of illustration in a new video, The Art of Illustration. Off Book is an web-original series from PBS Arts that explores cutting edge arts and the artists that make it.
"Illustrators articulate what a photograph cannot. Using an array of techniques and styles, illustrators evoke stories and meaning in a variety of mediums, from editorial illustration in magazines and newspapers, to comics books, to activist media. And as their tasks over the years have become less informational and more expressive, their individual voice as artists becomes all the more critical and beautiful, revealing an exciting and awe-inspiring age of illustration." - PBS Off Book
