Is Illustration a Dead Art?

Saturday, May 06, 2006

3X3 founder, Charles Hively says no. Since December of 2003, Hively has been promoting the idea that illustration is very much alive and that "the illustrators working today have the ability to become rock stars".

Hively speaks out on the state of the artform in this thought-provoking interview.

Take a few minutes to read where he believes our industry is headed.


  1. I am really glad that you posted this linkl. It is a good one for all illustrators to read. Nice to pour over something that is supporting the industry for once. Thanks.

  2. My pleasure, Holly - you're absolutely right, these can be gloomy times for those of us who illustrate. Hively is investing a lot of good karma into the business with his efforts.
