>>2243743 I think the bottom fell out on the market and all the graphic design and illustration jobs dried up. It was very easy to get into for a while but the shit economy and initial glut of graduates killed moat open positions. Most just haven't been made aware of that little fact yet because someone is always spreading old info.
>>2243844 There probably are more illustration jobs than ever before. Just think how many books and ebooks get published each year, how many editorial things for magazines are needed, how many tcg there are, mobile games etc. There are so many more markets within illustration than in the past and there are tons more people now so there is higher demand. That being said, there are also more artists struggling to make it in the field so it is probably tougher to get jobs than in the past even if there are more jobs in an absolute number.
>>2243844 Go out and talk to other illustrators who have been at it for at least the past 8 years. Shit was cake, especially in graphic design and related fields, before that global economic depression,. Then you had the one-two punch of recent graduates filling those positions and the market shrinking overall.
There are more jobs, but the number of open positions is smaller than it was. It's a market that has become very difficult to get into for having so many jobs because none of them are open.
