Where is the Content?

Over at the Creative Review, Lawrence Zeegan wrote an interesting piece about what he sees as an increasing insularity in the world of illustration. Since I draw (mostly) for fun and write for my money, I feel somewhat disinclined to comment (though I’d be interested to hear what some of my illustrator friends think), but Zeegan makes some good points, and no matter what your endeavors happen to be, it’s always a good goal to “fight the nothingness.”
