Apart from rendering photorealistic images many works in computer graphics focus on creating illustrative and artistic images. Such images can be used in many contexts ranging from CAD to planning and technical documentation. Finding mathematical principles and algorithms for aesthetic configurations is one important aspect for producing good illustrations. The talk will give an overview about this fascinating field between art and science, many examples will illustrate how close compuational outputs come to what artists are able to create.
