I have grown with the agency for over 12yrs and it has to be said the whole experience has been a professional and a 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 nothing but 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.

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
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.

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
Being represented by IllustrationX 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.

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 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 :)

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!

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
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
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
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

Thank you so much for an amazing job. I hope to work with you again on another illustration in the future.

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.

Thank you again for all your help in organising Jacqueline for our hotel launch. We have received nothing but wonderful comments from the evening and her presence was a real highlight for many guests. It got very busy at some points but she was an absolute professional throughout…sketching non-stop for five hours!!
Gina Traboulsi, FlamingoRose
I joined IllustrationX 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
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.

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
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
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
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
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’.
