How Book Illustration Professionals Can Help You

Book illustration is the creation of art or drawings that accompanies any form of text found in a book. Illustrations are created using pens, pencils and oil painting (to name a few). Today, some of the illustrations are created using computer software such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and Adobe Photoshop. Book illustrations are created by artists who create pictures to assist with easier understanding of the text contained in the book. Book illustrators often work as freelancers as well as from a remote location. On Guru, you are able to hire numerous skilled illustrators that are able to bring your book to life.

Book illustrators create art for picture books, children’s books, novels, novellas and textbooks. They are skilled at reading the text of the book in order to create illustrations that are appropriate to the audience. Adept artists create drawings that are both in color or black & white in order to match the look and feel of the story. Illustrators are able to craft drawings for fiction and non-fiction books. They are able to draw free hand as well as use computer software with the aid of drawing equipment to craft images digitally. If you’re an author or a publishing house, the services of a freelance book illustrator will do you well. You will find book illustrators for hire on with the experience you need and at the price you want to pay.
