Illustration was once only done with pen, ink, pencils and or brushes, but due to advances in technology freelance illustrators shifted their focus to the computer and the Adobe Illustrator software. Clipart came first and then with the invention of vector graphics, artists began using Adobe Illustrator to create beautiful illustrations that could be scaled as small or as large as one needed.
This new software also allows for easy customization, beautiful coloring and gorgeous effects. The demand for quality vector artists is great and that demand has dramatically increased the number of freelance illustrators working part-time or full-time from home.
