Why is vector illustration typically simplified and stylized?

It really comes down to the basic differences between vector images and raster images.  Things like shading and blending are not possible with vector images.  Vector illustrations can only create simple linear or radial gradients.   So when an illustrator is using a vector for an illustration, they must get rid of small details that would make the image too complicated.  Trying to depict every detail of an image in an illustration would take massive amounts of time.

Here are some marketing icons that I created. You can use them for anything that you like, just don't sell them.  :)  They are marketing icons, mostly print but there is one for a website.

There are so many web site hosting companies out there.  How do you know which to choose?  Word of mouth.

Whether it's a negative or positive experience, finding how satisfied others are is the best way to make that choice.

So which host is my favorite?  Hands-down the winner is Hostgator.

Doing case studies is a method of research. Case studies are in-depth investigations into real-life cases

Based upon data and research that help you to identify a problem and suggest strategies and resolutions.  It also an important way to see how other put key concepts into action.  I will from time to time share what I have learned in my case studies here.
