Black and Hayman

Boy, are we glad Roger Black has a blog–finally someone who can tell it like it is. He’s got a raconteurish edge to his writing, although it’s not so curmudgeonly that we plug our youthful ears in defiance. And he can ask questions of someone like, say, Luke Hayman, that are infinitely better than anything we’d ask because, hey, he’s been there:

Can illustration come back to magazines with the kind of force of the art in the early New York magazine?

I don’t think so. For most stories photography–if you have it–is the best way to go–it’s simply more immediate. We’ve tried, with mixed results, a couple of narrative illustrated features (in the vein of James McMullen etc.), but it’s not a regular thing. The other tool we have and love, is photo-illustration where we get the best of both worlds: the control plus the illusion of reality. That’s fun!
