Abstraction and Figure

Abstraction: A visual representation that may have little resemblance to the real world. Abstraction can occur through a process of simplification or distortion in an attempt to communicate an essential aspect of a form or concept. Cartoons are a version of abstraction. The illustration below was hand-drawn, traced, and colored in Adobe Illustrator by me.



Figure
: Any positive shape or form noticeably separated from the background or, the negative space.
