Online Illustrators Need An Advocate

Well, I found one.  In an article I read a few months ago, Kohi Vinh brought to the foreground the alarmingly BAD illustration and exposure artists are getting online. While I could have written a post agreeing with his post…  I wanted to do one better.

Below is a narrative of the post – Kohi’s article driven down to its core – an automated, web-static dramatization of what’s wrong with online illustration (or the lack thereof).

I know a lot of my readers are artists, or used to be and now find themselves in “The Digital Wonderland.” What say you?  Is this digital age making it harder for Illustrators and artists of all kinds to make a living at their chosen trade, or are we just a bunch of crybabies?

I mean, SOMEONE is working…  why not you?
