I joined IllustrationX and AnimationX in 2011 and couldn’t be happier. All of the agents and staff are fantastic and great to work with. They’ve given me the opportunity to work with clients all over the world, most of which I don’t think I would have had the chance to on my own. I’m very honored to be a member of the IllustrationX family and look forward to working with them in the years to come.

Thanks for the illustrations for our project. Both our client and ourselves like them very much. The working process has been very smooth and all achieved within our budget. And special thanks to IllustrationX who, through this project, has demonstrated Illustrationx and AnimationX unique capability of bridging up Chinese creativity with Western interpretation and execution

IllustrationX and AnimationX have always been a great support to my endeavours as an illustrator, their tireless interest in finding new clients and the best new illustrators means I'm always gifted with good company. And with clients coming from all over the world, new markets and opportunities are always around the corner.

I've hired four different artists from the excellent group of illustrators that IllustrationX and AnimationX represents, and have had great results each time. The jobs always go smoothly. There is a great range of artists and styles here. When searching for the right talent for an assignment, this is one of my "go-to" sites to check out. I plan on using my favorite artists again and also look forward to trying new artists in the group.

“This experience working with Karen Kaller and Juliette Toma has been amazing. The attention to detail, partnership and promptness is beyond my expectations.”
Juan Lopez, Dave’s Hot Chicken
Thank you Harry! I've lost count of the number of years you and your FAB team have represented me, one thing's for certain, the partnership has yielded great satisfaction from my quarter. My work has developed tremendously under your supervision, to a point I wouldn't have thought possible all those years ago in Blackpool college, sitting at my battered desk ... keep an eye on antique's roadshow it may well show up!
Ian Naylor @ illustration
I am honored to be represented by such honest and professional agents! I joined IllustrationX over a year ago and thanks to them I have already received many great commissions for worldwide clients. The team constantly promote your work and communicate with you to improve your portfolio and visibility. Thanks to their effort and tireless enthusiasm I feel confident that my portfolio will continually attract a wide range of clients! I couldn't ask for a better team of agents: Juliette is remarkably efficient, Victoria always passionate and professional about giving advice, and the finance team punctual with payments!
Lucia Emanuela Curzi @ illustration
I wanted to email you both together now the illustrations are done and I've sent the book to print just to say thank you! It was lovely working with you both and made the commissioning process so straightforward. And of course, we're all thrilled with the illustrations and can't wait to see them in the final book. They really are wonderful pieces. (I don't know if you get inundated with such things, but do let me know if you'd like a copy of the book and

I find working with IllustrationX and AnimationX very easy and the agenting team supply a very quick & professional service. They represent a large selection of good quality illustrators with a wide selection of styles. The website is easy to use & search. I enjoy being kept up to date with their promotional emails & Scrapbook notebooks which give me a sense of the illustrator's personality and help me gauge if they are the right person for a particular project.
Steve Marking - Art Director, Orion Publishing Group UK
IllustrationX and AnimationX have a fantastic team of agents working around the world. They are all great to work with, very trustworthy and enthusiastic. I put my complete trust in them to look after the job in hand. I have been a part of this large family of illustrators for a few years, and feel like my client base has gone from strength to strength. Illustration has given me the chance to work with all ends of the illustration world and given me lots of experience in many different area's! Fantastic Team! Thank you IllustrationX
Hannah Davies @ illustration
I just wanted to say a big "Thank you" to you for your gorgeous newsletters! I just love them! This is finally a newsletter you don’t want to miss or just overlook! It is so nice to get some further information about the illustrators’ and how they work, what inspires them and so on. Such a nice "distraction" in daily business! =) I get to know many "new" artists I didn’t know or had in mind so far - and of course the free poster is just awesome!!!! This is so nice to get a free "sample" of some wonderful illustrations. I found a place at home for one or the other, or they just decorate my office a little bit
Magdalena Ignatowski - Art Buyer, OgilvyOne Frankfurt
Thank everyone at IllustrationX and AnimationX for the lovely notebook that arrived on my desk this morning! All the best
Paula Ellis , Deputy Art Director Conde Nast Traveller
IllustrationX and AnimationX picked me up as a raw talent and have helped instil a deep understanding of the visual communication industry and client needs whilst leaving my creativity unbridled. A friendlier, more accommodating and professional agency you'll struggle to find. I'm thrilled to be signed to the best in the world.
Ben Tallon @ illustration
I have had the pleasure of working with IllustrationX and AnimationX for several years now, and it's been a joy! Always friendly and professional, they have provided me with great work and clientele, from the UK and USA especially. I feel as though I'm in good hands!
Lauren Mortimer @ illustration
Just to say that your latest book has just arrived on my desk!!!! I cannot tell you how lovely they are to have – and I was just beginning to get worried that my other one was running out of space. Such a good idea – and so many people comment on it.
Maggie Roberts, Project Director TBWA
Just to let you know that you have been extremely helpful for the last 8 months of working on this project. I am actually very impressed with how you handled everything along the way including the contract issues that we had etc.. You were always very responsive, reliable, very sharp and helpful. I went into this project without knowing much about this and was pleasantly surprised with how you were able to manage it. Working with an artist across the world who does not speak English or know what I need sounds really challenging. You were a huge part of this thing going really smooth. I hope your boss really appreciates you working for this company :)
Yana Hoch, Self Publisher USA
Working with IllustrationX and AnimationX just gets better and better - and I've been with them for over 20 years so I should know! The team themselves are the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness and their experience shines through in every aspect of working with them. They work extremely hard at making sure that both clients and illustrators are happy. I feel my own work and creativity has been able to grow and flourish thanks to the many high calibre clients and varied briefs they have secured for me. They keep me consistently very busy with lovely work - sometimes too much! But they definitely take the headache out of it with their excellent support and working practices. I am proud to be a part of the catalogue of talented, pleasant and enthusiastic artists they attract. For me, Illustration is more than just an agency, it's a connection to the best (and nicest!) people in the industry, right around the world.
Gail Armstrong @ illustration
100% reliable, representing great artists. I'm very happy working with IllustrationX and every time I use another agency I instantly regret it. All the illustrators I've worked with have been very professional, hit deadlines and produced great work. If an illustrator is busy Juliette or Alice are great at recommending an alternative
Simon Freeborough, Nuts/IPC Media
It was a pleasure working with you and your talent:). Good luck in the future and thanks again. We are all really happy with the art.
Heidi Longmire, Glass Agency
Thanks, team IllustrationX for a terrific evening at Scrapbook Live - a great way to get a sense of the agency and what it's about. The dynamism of the agents and the diversity of the art was very apparent. I've always liked the fact that IllustrationX represents a select list of artists whose styles are very broad. This was well showcased. It was a pleasure to meet some of your artists too. To know that the individuals you represent are so energetic, professional and personable really is a huge draw when thinking of commissioning. Above all, we took away a great sense of energy, openness and optimism from artists & agents. Great feelings to have at the moment.
Emily Lamm, Walker Books
Excellent professional, very helpful and his work is very good. It will undoubtedly surprise your expectations
Alessandro Ricci , Wonder Burger
I have been represented by the good folks at IllustrationX and AnimationX for over eight years now since being spotted by Senior Agent Juliette Lott and Consulting Agent Sarah Beetson at an exhibition of my work. I was represented shortly afterwards and since then I have enjoyed not only the opportunity to work on some first-class commissions for worldwide clients but I have also had the constant support, guidance and expertise of the whole team. Thank heavens for that exhibition and the potential that they saw in me. I couldn’t wish to have my illustration endeavours better catered for.
T.S Spookytooth @ illustration
Working with IllustrationX was easy and seamless. Lauren was quick to respond to any questions and made the process of our first time working with an illustrator super easy. Everything went swimmingly! The brief was answered quickly and professionally, the communication flowed fast and seamlessly, everything was done in a timely manner, and our expectations were exceeded.
Kaitlyn Bowen, Michigan Breastfeeding Network
I'm so proud to be represented by you and I still pinch myself at some of the clients I have had the pleasure of working with. It would not be possible without you great people so thank you so so much and I look forward to getting better at my craft this year and working with you on some more fun projects!
