Illustrators conceptualise and create illustrations which represent an idea or a story through 2D and 3D images. 

Illustrators also do drawings for printed material such as books, magazines, textiles, greeting cards, wrapping paper, packaging, stationary you name it!

An illustrator might use pencil or paint or software such as Adobe Illustrator. There are also Technical Illustrators who conceptualise and create 3D images, storyboard sketches, animations for TV commercials, movies, computer games and exhibition designs.
