Go, Read: Artist Jillian Tamaki's Chairperson's Address In The Society Of Illustrators' Annual

Presented and explained here. Tamaki is of course a thrilling maker of comics in addition to a talented illustrator and that kind of natural, individual-directed versatility is part of her point on the positive qualities of the way things exist right now for image-makers of all sorts. One thing I like about the address is that it doesn't tie any of those positives aspects to a specific financial outcome in a "you want this, you have to accept this" manner. I think it's okay to want the maximum amount of artistic expression and the best result for all factor in support of that art. If that's not part of the excitement, it seems to me the natural, most desirable response.
