Do illustrators count as "writers"

I was watching Ferdinand and it has the following credits:


My question is should Robert Lawson be credited with a writing credit? I don't think so because even though his illustrations are a basis for the look & feel of the movie, he's not actually a writer. But, if he should be credited, how should that credit look?

Hi All -

Thanks for all your thoughtful comments about how illustrator credits should be categorized on the site.  I have passed along all your feedback to our editorial team for review and requested an update to our guides to help address these specific credit examples.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, we've now added a new point to the writers guide to address these cases.

Regards,
