Svarade på en enkät

från en kille som skriver D-uppsats i 'Enterprise & Management' på London College of Communication:
1. What do you think about the future of the business of illustration?

I think there will always be a need for illustrations but it is a competitive industry.

2. Do you think the Internet has significantly changed the profession of the illustrator?

Yes. I could not imagine getting commissions without an Internet presence.

3. Have Internet marketing facilitated new business lines in Illustration? If so, which new opportunities or different ways of working have arisen?

I don't know.

4. Which Internet Marketing tools such as website, blogs, social media do you use normally? Do you think all of them are really useful?

My website with its portfolio is my main tool but I would not get much traffic to it if I was not a member of some high profile internet portfolio portals (The Association of Illustrators and Brighton Illustrators Group) where I estimate 80% of my clients found me. I also blog every day but I view that as recreation, not a marketing tool.

5. Do you think that with Internet Marketing the access to the business is easier for incoming new illustrators?

Only easier in the sense that you can now live anywhere and present and deliver work digitally. No need to travel to, say, London or NY to show a physical portfolio, or go through the cumbersome procedure of posting original artwork. For those who lack IT skills I think working as an illustrator is increasingly hard.

6. Do you think the way of working is different in the last years compared with a more traditional stage?

I don't know, I never worked on the traditional stage, please see answer no 5.
