I love illustrations. I grew up with them in the books I read. Didn't we all? The thing about illustrations is that they work best in context, marriaged to copy, poetry, prose or some kind of writing you can pair it with, which makes them so versatile, like music. I'm not much of an illustrator myself, but once in a blue moon, I may decide to dribble or trace something. I used to do more of it, but not so much recently.
