  1. Can I use any of your illustrations in my essay so long as I give you proper reference? They're so good that I can't really top them.

  2. Yes, of course! But often I use other people's illustrations. I think I have them clearly distinguished when I made them or when I have taken them from other sources. Just contact me again if it is unclear. Also, I would be interested in seeing your essay after it is written. Best wishes, Corry
