I was at a newsstand recently, and not a single general interest magazine except The New Yorker had an illustration on the cover. I can understand them cutting down on size to save money, but, must they all have photographs? Many teachers I had in art school blamed the dearth of illustration on Spy with its graphics, but they still had a number of illustrations. Even newspapers like The Village Voice have stopped paying some of their contributors.
At one time Time would frequently have a drawing instead of a photograph.
These are scans rather than magazines I own. This is why I couldn't get them bigger and the borders are blurry. I wish I could.
Okay this first one doesn't count, since it's for a story specifically about comics.
