Authors and illustrators are creative people who use their excellent storytelling skills to make some amazing art pieces. They play a huge role in the learning and development of children specifically. This is because young children learn a lot about human behavior, human values, and cultures from these stories. Authors are known to tell stories through descriptive narration while the illustrators use their creative minds to tell the story only through attractive images.
Both authors and illustrators play the role of telling the story. But they do so differently. They have different responsibilities while creating a compelling story.
An author is usually self-employed. He can work from his comfort zone, but has to travel to meet with the publisher. However, the main role of the author is to create a compelling story in the mind. Before doing so, the author keeps in mind the nature of his audience. After creating a main theme or inspiration for the story the author then develops characters and their scenarios. He also establishes the plot and the difficulties that the characters would face. If the author is setting his story in a certain time period, he will also have to conduct research to collect correct facts regarding that era to make the story look more realistic. After all of this is done, the author organizes his thoughts and facts in order. He starts to write the story and edit it afterwards.
Illustrators usually have innate artistic qualities. Their job is to use the talent and form a story through images. He uses software on the computer or does so by hand. The illustrator edits his own work as well. He has to use compelling colors and accurate drawings to make stories that actually look realistic.
