Resources

The Photo-to-Illustration Guide gives program managers the resources they need to plan for and produce high-quality illustrations for use in their print and web materials. This guide explains the technical process artists use to create illustrations and gives guidance on how to find artists and collaborate with them to create visual materials that clearly and effectively communicate key messages.

The Photo-to-Illustration Guide


The Photo-to-Illustration Video Tutorial (below) demonstrates the steps of the technical process, from reference photography to line drawing, color, volume, patterns, and a final image for layout. The video is intended as a visual companion to the Photo-to-Illustration Guide. Both program managers and illustrators alike can use the video to understand the process and begin to create their own high-quality images.
