Reading an article recently about the history of the internet got me thinking about how it has made my job as an illustrator easier and more convenient in so many ways. The article also made me think about how far technology has come in a relatively short period of time.
Nearly twenty years ago, I did my first-ever illustration for Popular Science. Check out one of the headlines on the cover of that issue, “The Internet: Why Bother?”. Too funny. And look at that digital camera on the cover! By the standards of today, it’s as portable as a boat anchor. Looking forward to what the next twenty years will bring.
