A good illustration essay must start with a well known or well researched topic.

Remember that the topic should be in the body of the essay as in many research papers. Always bear in mind that you will have an audience so you have to entertain them. In conclusion writing an illustration paper is after all, knowing perfectly what are you talking about and trying to make it interesting.
