Connecting you to the greatest variety and choice of top illustration and animation talent in the World

Working with Illustration (USA) and Lauren gave me peace of mind that emails wouldn’t be overlooked and paperwork would be signed and returned to me in a timely manner. It provided an extra layer of efficient communication and transparency, which always helps to take pressure off commissioned projects.
Lyanne Nativdad, Billboard Magazine
Being represented by IllustrationX and AnimationX has been truly invaluable to me and my dream of being an Illustrator. As a graduate, they have opened doors for me, so early in my career, that I couldn't possibly have reached without their help and knowledge of the industry. The whole team, all over the world, are professional and friendly in equal measure and have made my transition from student to working professional not only a possibility but a pleasure.
Chris Gilleard @ illustration
Nina is very professional and helpful. She liaised with our artist to produce the result we were after. A pleasure to work with you. Thanks
Tamara Byrnes, Lovatts Media
Our accounts person and JP the artist we selected were very professional and quickly remedied a problem with a file when it arose. Ultimately, my managers are very happy with the work and I think our magazine readers will find it inspirational too.
Ashley Schena, The Salvation Army National Corporation
I have grown with the agency for over 12yrs and it has to be said the whole experience has been a professional and pleasurable one. From the early days when I first secured representation, they were very tolerant as they nurtured me through the commission process and were always fighting my corner. This patience, personable and professional approach has been maintained throughout my time with the agency. I have always found them reliable, honest and enthusiastic about each commission I have been involved with. And at the risk of sounding a little gorgonzola – the team has become more of a family than just a mere artist/agent relationship.
Stuart Holmes @ illustration
IllustrationX has an illustrator for every job. The interaction between client, rep and artist is always easy and professional. My rep, Karen, has always gone above and beyond to help me whenever I bring a project to her.
Gigi Ortwein, SagaCity Media
Very easy communication, delighted with the final illustration and all the updates along the way!
Sam Scarpa
Great communication and service.
Alex Mills, Alex Mills
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
The whole team is highly professional and extremely friendly, which is a great bonus. They are a pleasure to work with as they are swift with communication, and 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 AnimationX and be amongst the best illustrators.
Chrissy Lau @ 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 Amary in China it has always been a great delight to work with ‘IllustrationX’.
Christopher Corr @ illustration
Nadia and Illustration X made the process of working with an illustrator seamless. From commissioning an illustrator, to checking in along the way, Nadia has made me feel supported throughout the process of getting illustrations ready for my Children’s Picture Book, ’Sophie Won’t Sleep’. Nadia is also a lovely human being, who has always been friendly and approachable throughout the process.
Danielle Camer
IllustrationX was professional and timely with communication and paperwork to keep the project moving forward. They listened to our needs and worked with us to make sure our partnership was smooth and clear for each person involved. Invoicing was clear and arrived as expected. Aside from the business aspect, Lauren was passionate about the project and it was clear that she wanted it to succeed.
Jeremy Albert, Trendy Minds
Excellent service and outstanding illustrations
Sandra Marques, HAYMARKET Media Group
Love working with your agency. Each time it’s been a lovely and seamless experience.
Lidia Moore, Women's Wear Daily
Great company and excellent talent
David Plafchan, Papa & Barkley
Incredible group to work with on every level. Absolutely recommend.
John Schoenfelder, NEOTEXT
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
Fantastic service - understanding and professional
Rob Scott, TLC Marketing
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 uphold the agency’s leading position and I couldn’t have found a better home.
Montana Forbes @ illustration
We work with Stacey Endress and she is fabulous! She understands our needs, always speedy in reply and a great communicator between us and your artists.
Ceci Butler, Design House Greetings, Inc.
I've had the pleasure of working with Karen Kaller and am always pleased with her response time and advocacy for both the client and the illustrator. I highly recommend her!
Lauraine Gustafson, Classical Academic Press
"I approached Svetlana with a complex set of goals and requirements for a musical album cover. She listened carefully to all my requests and produced a design that perfectly combined all of the desired elements. In the process, she created a beautiful work of art. It was a pleasure to communicate with Svetlana throughout the project: she responded quickly to my comments and questions and kept me informed about the work as it progressed. The project was completed ahead of schedule, with every detail in its ideal place."
Svetlana Molodchenko @ illustration
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. 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 areas! Fantastic Team! Thank you IllustrationX
Hannah Davies @ illustration
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.
Joseph McDermott @ illustration
We absolutely love IllustrationX. There's an artist for every conceivable project, and they're all amazing at what they do. We've never been let down by anyone on their roster. I couldn't recommend this agency enough for the easy commissioning process, excellent communication, and of course the terrific work of their artists.
Ryan Rich, Cape Fear Publishing
Working with Lauren was very seamless. She replied very quickly, which was helpful and reassuring while working with my tight deadline. Her efficiency certainly exceeded my expectations.
Cece Pascual, The Washington Post
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 have 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
We love working with Karen and every illustator who creates beautiful work for us!
Tad Barker, Meredith Operations Corporation DBA The Foundry
I love working with my rep Karen Kaller. I always feel that she will go out of her way to help me connect with the right illustrator for the job.
Gigi Ortwein, SagaCity Media

The experience has been Perfect, in fact we are moving forward with the Illustrator. Karen the coordinator, was very helpful, patient and responsive, I would definitely recommend.

10M Trees

Working together to combat global warming

Every time you commission one of our illustrators or animators, you are not only benefitting from outstanding artistic and creative talent; you’re also helping to create a healthier planet and to alleviate global poverty.


That’s because since 2013 Illustration has been donating 1% of its turnover to systematic growing and protecting trees, to help reverse the rate of global warming. In 2018 we passed the 1 million trees milestone. Our target is now set firmly on growing and protecting a total of 10 million trees in Zambia and the Ethiopian Rift Valley.
