The show must go on……as lockdown continues and the way that we work has changed for many, we need to think of new ways to connect to our audience and create meaningful and authentic content that make an impact and create new relationships with our audiences in these uncertain times.
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
Thanks Illustration team 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 diversity of the art was very apparent. I've always liked the fact that Illustration Ltd represent 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
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 lllustrators I've worked with have been very professional, hit deadlines and produced great work. If an illustator is busy Juliette or Mike are great at recommending an alternative
Simon Freeborough, Nuts/IPC Media
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.

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.

2017 was a successful year! I got a chance to work with some big clients via IllustrationX, such as Armani Exchange, Sourcebook, Inc, Prevention Magazine etc.
Hope 2018 is getting better and better.
And I also feel grateful and thankful for all of Illustrationx team and agents to help my career!

Stacey is a perfect communicator and is always on top of any issue that we may have.

Thanks guys...you’ve got a great range of Illustrators and they’re backed up by your friendly and efficient team....always a pleasure to work with.
Simon Williams MD & Creative Director, Feast Creative Ltd - London
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
As an illustrator for the past 25 years, life has always been up and down especially on the payments side of things. Since joining "IllustrationX" 6 years ago, I have had a steady stream of work , sometimes an overwhelming amount, even having to turn down some jobs.
Most of my work comes from London, Germany and the States where the entire team is friendly, approachable and efficient and I never have cause to doubt that they are getting the best possible payment on each commission.
The payment system is fair and I can finally organise my life well as I always get paid at the same time each month.
Well done "IllustrationX" for finally making my working life an organised one!
Jacqueline Bissett @ illustration
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 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 Tianyin who, through this project, has demonstrated Illustration Ltd’s unique capability of bridging up Chinese creativity with Western interpretation and execution
Liza Law, JWT Shanghai
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.
Montana Forbes @ illustration
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!
Ian Naylor @ illustration
IllustrationX 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 corner.
Rohan Eason @ illustration
Some of you may already know I branched out to full time freelance last year and its been quite the learning curve but overall a great experience. I want to thank all of you at IllustrationX for the work that you do to make this even possible for me.
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!
Luke Scriven @ illustration
The agents at IllustrationX were an absolute delight to work with. Stacey was quick to respond and flexible with deadlines and budget restrictions. Definitely one of my first stops when looking to assign an illustration project!
Sara D'Eugenio - Associate Art Director, Seattle Met
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.
Alan Baker @ illustration
It was a pleasure working with you & Bob! Keep in touch!
Igor Guinau - Creative Manager, Tommy Hilfiger
Andreas and yourself were a dream to work with, and all of the artwork exceeded our expectations. I look forward to working with you again soon!
Jess Williams - Art Director, AGInteractive
We just recieved our May issue that Tony illustrated for us, and it's just FABULOUS! Getting rave reviews all aound the office. Thank you so much! It will probably be my best cover ever & I have Tony to thank for that. I look forward to working with both Illustration & Tony again in the future
Regine M. Lombardo - Art Director, MM&M New York
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
Lovely to see you last night at Scrapbook Live. So good to see all the artists and their work to. I'm always impressed by the diversity of your artists and I left feeling all inspired.
Berni Palmer, Freelance Book Designer
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.
