Thinking about the Future of Illustration & Publishing

Another month and another inspiring meeting of our lovely lively critique group. There was wonderful artwork, stories and the most decadent chocolate cake!

At one point our attention turned to the question of the future of illustration with the general decline of print publishing and uncertain future of digital media. (Perhaps spurred by an upcoming local SCBWI meeting topic- if anyone attends this lecture on March 15th, please let us know what you learned)

Tara told us about the Alice in Wonderland for the iPad and later shared this link, which shows a bit of the animated imagery that they've created for this version of the book. Take a peek and let us know what you think - do you think that this the direction in which book illustration is going to go?
