An illustration may be defined as a furnishing for a written text in the form of drawings or pictorial presentations intended as an elucidation or adornment. Although interpretations may seem analogous to illustrations, there are subtle but manifest differences between them. Interpretations are extra festoons to a text that aren’t clearly stated but can be detected if we read between the lines.

Often, when we read and analyse a text, we have troubles when interpreting what we read. This is because these vital bits of information can be overwhelmingly tedious to comprehend and aren’t very manifest. However, if a text is read meticulously, interpretations can be more potent than illustrations. This is despite the saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

Illustrations basically succour the reader to conjure up the images intended by the author but interpretations go beyond that. All we have to do is fastidiously break down the information that is being transferred to us in the text. If we submit our mind and creativity to the text being read, we can scrupously explore another unsurpassed world created by it.

In conclusion, we must all explore arts profusely in order to increase the altruism of illustrations and interpretations. This would further increase our elation and appreciation when reading texts. It requires nominal effort to dig up art, afterall, “there is art in everything, even roasted apples.” So what are you waiting for? Increase your passion for arts today.
