The illustrations themselves are interpreted as "pictures that tell / explain an event, or describe a narrative through the language of images". So, mastering drawing techniques and understanding of the structure of drawings must be owned by an illustrator or cartoonist.
The function of illustration as an additional drawing for demonstration or explanation of a story in a book, does not emphasize too much on the artistic quality, just enough to be made but still explains it (although many illustrators draw it very well). If you have to draw a hand that holds a needle, just draw a hand that holds a needle, without the need to draw a very realistic and detailed hand or use a color combination that can only be made by a skilled painter.
That's how the illustrator Artist and cartoonist based in Philadelphia, David Jablow, with his extraordinary creativity and talent can develop any image he wants. Even though only doodle drawings in the form of unfinished women can make many interesting, funny and beautiful picture stories.

David Jablow used this basic drawing to create many extraordinary illustrations
In a recent interview with Bored Panda, the artist said he has been drawing his entire life and that one of his favorite activities is cartooning and illustration. “The half-drawn pin-up girls serve as the inspiration. I just imagine what they could be doing and then figure out how to create the world around them,” explained David. He has been working on his vintage doodle series for the past 10 years and says each illustration is a new but familiar challenge.
“The half-drawn pin-up girls serve as the inspiration..I just imagine what they could be doing and then figure out how to create the world around them,” Jablow detailed his creative process. “Every one is a new but familiar challenge.” The "Do It Yourself Doodler" series was the very beginning of his artistic journey into the world of doodling over pieces and the artist's creative journey into placing soulless templates into colorful and detailed worlds.
When asked how did people respond to his artwork, Jablow said that the general response was great and contributed his popularity to social media and viral content sites. “I also exhibit the original pieces in galleries,” he added.
