Illustration brings life to a subject like no photograph can. Concept and mood become malleable through color and style, while capturing a realism undeterred by surroundings. Surroundings, reflections, and shadows can be created to enhance the subject, creating a space uniquely its own. Photo-realistic illustration portrays the subject in a lifelike style that is removed from ambient distractions and camera distortion. Stylized illustration adds a mood, an attitude, while sporting a clean, simplified look. Linda Carruth has been illustrating detailed shiny objects for over 30 years. She uses mechanical drawing methods and traditional rendering techniques, utilizing today's digital tools. Linda also specializes in photo-illustration, using photographic pieces and bits of ephemera, blending them to bring concepts to life.
