I’ve been using IllustrationX now for some years and Thilo Rothacker seems to have become my regular illustrator. His style suits the legal magazine I work on. Communication is always easy and straightforward, and I like to work with people with a little humour, as Thilo and Alice, from the agency has. Thilo turns around sketches and idea’s quickly and Im always so happy when I see the end result. He has made my magazine come to life! I hope Alice, Thilo and I work together for many years to come.
