The exhibition highlights the dialogue that the illustrator generates between the idea and what is drawn; it highlights the illustrator's message and the interpretation made by the public, and emphasizes the role of illustration as a trade at the service of society's ideas and messages, and "highlights how illustration is one more vehicle to convey ideas, dreams, denunciations and an endless number of messages that as artists we want to convey", commented the students of the programme.
