The creator must consider how to marry the text and image into an integrated whole.
I am a published illustrator and a member of CWILL. But ideally, I hope one day to illustrate my own stories. This is a common wish by illustrators because of the organic way a story unfolds during the creative process. The creator must consider how to marry the text and image into an integrated whole.
The common thread with my writing seems to be structuring a humorous and absurd storylines in which the characters play with both chaos and order in order to eventually find a balance that works for them. While the stories are meant to be amusing, they do touch upon significant issues, introducing a variety of possible solutions, interpretations and meanings.
