What is an Illustration?

An illustration is a visualization or a depiction made by an artist, such as a drawing, sketch, painting, photograph, or other kind of image of things seen, remembered or imagined, using a graphical representation. The main aim of illustration is to describe or explain a story, poem or a piece of textual information by providing visual representation of something described in text.
