Famous Illustrators

If I think of famous illustrators, my mind goes to Norman Rockwell. When he was alive he was earning the equivalent of half-million dollars per year. Today, his work sell for much more.

The fact to see pictures and images and drawings everywhere is so established to us today that we don't realize anymore the amplitude of what has happened in the last 600 years.

The invention of the Gutemberg print press, and so the start of the book was the beginning of an ever growing number of ideas and yes, images circulating. This has exploded to full magnitude with the internet and mobile devices today,

But we ought to bear in min that the Middle Ages, the Renaissance with Leonardo and Michelangelo and Raffaello, and then up towards lesser known painters, in the midst of the industrial revolution and especially the second industrial revolution with the invention of new engraving techniques and finally photography, all these steps were to cover the human need for images who could tell a story and show it to the eye.

Television has been always in man's mind.
