Are illustrations considered decorative art, fine art or maybe an applied art? However, you consider illustration art it has been around for a very long time and completed using multiple media. Very ancient cave wall illustrations used charcoal, animal blood and dirt. We have certainly progress from those days, but still use charcoal along with other media like pen and ink, water color, and even computers. Most illustration drawings were later duplicated using engravings, etchings, lithography or other processes for printing.

Illustrative drawing became more widely viewed with the invention of written language and the creation of documents. Artisans would illustrate books and documents manually to help communicate the contents. This was very common in early Christianity documents since they were mostly written in Latin which few commoners could read. The illustration artwork helped communicate the importance of the document and educate the masses.

Over time, illustrations moved from just adorning religious texts to becoming common place in all phases of life. The printing press provided an easy and inexpensive way to mass produce the illustration drawings so that more people to see and enjoy the artistry. The illustration art become popular not only in books but magazines and advertising. Demand for illustrated posters, fliers and billboards really grew during World War I as a way to communicate with the public and increase support of the war effort. Their use continued into World War II as famous artist like Norman Rockwell created posters including Rosie the Riveter to inspire a nation.

Illustration artwork became a major force in the print industry from magazine covers to bill boards and movie posters. The use of illustrations began to really drop off as television grew in popularity. The public taste shifted to seeing more realism in their print material from advertising to magazine covers. Resurgence of illustration art occurred when pop artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein were featured at major galleries and their creations became sought after wall d├ęcor.
