    Is there any, really? I mean without splitting hairs, here. Are there
    instances that call for either specific terminology?

    An artist can typically illustrate or operate comfortably in freehand
    whereas a designer compiles and composes.

    Graphic art is the process of creating a design on a medium. Like a t-shirt
    or a billboard.
    (remember from school, they printed t shirts).

    The term graphic design can refer to a number of artistic and professional
    disciplines which focus on visual communication and presentation(wiki).
