Vector artwork is made up of mathematical formulas rather than colourised pixels. A designer creates Vector art with software such as CorelDRAW, Adobe Illustrator or many others.
Tiny squares that vary in colour, called pixels, are put together to produce a seamless image. Bitmap images create art such as; photographs & scans. When scaling bitmap images, you need to be careful the pixels don't get too large that the picture becomes 'blurry'.
