I'm researching for my dissertation right now and it’s so far going into the realms of Illustration Vs Fine art. How they clash, why and who.
Mainly focusing on concept art and comic art going against art the likes of old master paintings and modern fine art.
I know of a few artists who run between the lines of both for example Ashley wood, Kent Williams yoji shinakawa etc.
I’m doing it because this is a criticism I find myself in all the time while studying Fine art. My work blatantly shows my influences are greatly from illustrators and other artists whose work has a big presence of narrative and reason.
Anyway my main question is does anyone has an opinion or knows of any good references of debates or book or anything on this before?
