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 antiques roadshow it may well show up!

Thank you so much for an amazing job. I hope to work with you again on another illustration in the future.
Benjamin MacDonald, Flare Magazine
This is my first year of representation with IllustrationX and hope there are many more years to come. The whole team are highly professional and also extremely friendly, which is a great bonus. They are a pleasure to work with as they are swift with communication, provide informative briefs and regular promotional support. I have already worked on some dream commissions that I couldn't have achieved without the team. It's an honour to be represented by IllustrationX and be amongst the best illustrators.

It was really great for our team to meet with Jacqueline last night. The event was a great success, with both our hosts and guests commenting on Jacqueline’s amazing illustrations. Thank you again for all your help, we hope to work with yourself and Jaqueline again on future events.

I find working with IllustrationX 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
Many thanks and Im so happy to work with you, guys. Very proud about this work. Big x for all.
Christiano Neves, JWT
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
IllustrationX picked me up as a raw talent and have helped instill 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've known IllustrationX for many years now and have always found them to be highly professional and passionate about delivering the best possible results, both from a creative and cost point of view. Each of the different agents that I've met are simply delightful, keen to help and to get the best out of their illustrators ensuring they deliver on brief and on time, every time.
The range of illustrators/artists they represent are the best in their field, and Illustration pride themselves on the wide variety of styles on offer. I find the website particularly useful when searching for just the right person and style to present on to my clients. Knowing that a can trust Illustration to support me in what I need, while ensuring that their artists are treated fairly and encouraged to do their best work time and again, makes it very easy to recommend them as the best illustration agency around.
Great people, great artist, great results.
Ian Lanksbury - Design Director, Radley Yeldar London
I have been an illustrator with IllustrationX since they started [I was with The Garden studio before this when Harry Lyon-Smith first began to work for them].
Up until this point I had had a number of disastrous relationships with agents run by cowboys - a very expensive and upsetting process. I have complete faith in IllustrationX and its brilliant team. They have always proven honest, efficient, friendly and dealt with clients in a business-like manner.
They are always one step ahead of the game when it comes to marketing and promotion. I haven't seen a better web site which is always being looked at and updated.
Un-like my past agents, I have always been paid [and on time] They communicate regularly with newsletters and promotions on different artists as well as having social events with their illustrators.
I have worked frequently for Die Illustratoren in Germany and also for Stacey in the US. Again, I can't speak more highly of them. Stacey is remarkably efficient and friendly always following through any opportunities that present themselves.

Thank everyone at IllustrationX for the lovely notebook that arrived on my desk this morning! All the best
Paula Ellis , Deputy Art Director Conde Nast Traveller
IllustrationX have a superb team of agents whom are trustworthy, pro active and completely reliable. Their varied client list has allowed me to expand the breadth of jobs undertaken. Their finance team is punctual with payments and they have been nothing but utterly brilliant to work with.
Helen Lang @ illustration
Working with IllustrationX 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
Having often heard of difficult stories from many illustrators and artists on how their careers were partly formed by bad experiences with various agencies, I feel very lucky and privileged that Consulting Agent Sarah Beetson immediately saw the potential in my work from a handful of images and to have IllustrationX's encouragement and support to confidently develop as a freelance artist. The agency is unique in that they have a personal approach to each artist, providing great guidance whilst also being very professional and fair in liaising with clients on our behalf. The international team’s expertise and innovative manner upholds the agency’s leading position and I couldn’t have found a better home.

With a fabulous selection of artists and a staff that is always on the ball, IllustrationX. makes my dreams come true every time.
Ryan Olbrysh, Art Director, Las Vegas Weekly
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
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

Always a pleasure, professional and friendly.
Regular commissions from all over the world, particularly the US and Germany and of course the UK.
Keep up the good work!
Kavel Rafferty @ illustration
I have had the pleasure of working with IllustrationX for just over a year 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
Such a great assortment of illustrators from all over the world! And a great team of reps right across the globe! ‘IllustrationX’ is truly international. The website is always fresh and informative. I really like the Scrapbooks. They are wonderful. For me as an illustrator in the ‘team’ I can really focus on being creative and leave all the other business in their safe hands. From Stacey in the US to Tianyin in China it has always been a great delight to work with ‘IllustrationX’.
Christopher Corr @ illustration
Thank you for helping coordinate this project with Lisa. She made a fantastic piece that everyone we've shown it to absolutely loves.
Also Thank you to Yourself & Mike. You both made an intimidating process incredibly easy (not always an easy thing to do by email)
Jordan Hillinger, Private Client
It was a pleasure working with you & Bob! Keep in touch!
Igor Guinau - Creative Manager, Tommy Hilfiger
Dear Rosie and IllustrationX, thank you again for the fantastic illustrations you have done for our project.
Ryan Lynch - Managing Partner, Beardwood&co - New York
We had the first exhibition of the Nippon paint underground artworks in Beijing last week & the feedback was great from the audience. Thanks, we will have the same event in Guangzhou and Shanghai as well, we would love to invite you to be there if you are able.
Lily Jin, Saatchi & Saatchi Shanghai
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
