Planning Your Message
When you think about your Illustrations, ask:
- What is the primary message that my illustration should convey?
- What are the secondary messages that my illustration should convey?
Keep in mind that your readers may not interpret your Illustration the same way that you do. It is much like the cliché, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Make sure your viewers understand your illustration.
Ask some of your intended readers what they see or interpret from the visual. If they don't have the same interpretation as your intended message, redesign the illustration.
