Illustration at AIGA
posted: February 22, 2007
Just in case it's not hit your radar yet, the AIGA has a blog devoted to illustration, moderated by Christoph Niemann Here's the AIGA intro: "Illustration lies in a no man's land, somewhere between fine art and clip art. Though illustration remains a powerful and versatile communication tool, it often plays a lonely role in the graphic arts. Illustrators operate from isolated studios, ignorant of the concerns of designers, who in turn are oblivious to the needs of illustrators. Design Forum: Illustration is an online forum built to bridge the gap between these two worlds. It's a place for criticism, commentary, and dialogue between illustrators and designers, to explore the evolving role illustration plays in today's publishing environment." Hook up to it

What an intro~! Jeepers. "Illustrators are struggling and barely alive, here is a message board to share you thoughts about this and your misery..."

"... ignorant of the concerns of designers..." Gee, I didn't know I was so clueless! I'd better hop on that site and see what's shakin'. Thanks, Robert.

I felt like an archeologist scanning the tombs when I looked at the dates on the posts! I expected to find one by Albert Dorne. BUT, that provocative diatribe of an intro seems to need some nitro if you ask me! i But then again, maybe I over react?

yeah - I was kinda sorta maybe pointing this place out because it has potential but has been largely neglected. I also found the intro to be, uh, interesting.
