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.

Christiano Neves, JWT
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 :)
Yana Hoch, Self Publisher USA
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 and your talent:). Good luck in the future and thanks again. We are all really happy with the art.
Heidi Longmire, Glass Agency
Stacey is a perfect communicator and is always on top of any issue that we may have.
Chris Beelitz, Edwin & Chris - Germany & Australia
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
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.

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
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
Illustrationweb have a really great range of talent, the website is simple and it’s easy to find exactly what I’m looking for and they are always a pleasure to work with.

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 just wanted to thank you profusely for the great illustrations you have made for us in the December issue of Tatler. We are extremely happy and think they look fantastic
Emelie De Vitis, Moët & Chandon
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
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
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
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.
Chrissy Lau @ illustration
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
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.

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
I have been represented by the good folks at IllustrationX for over eight years now since being spotted by Senior Agent Juliette Lott and Consulting Agent Sarah Beetson at an exhibition of my work. I was represented shortly afterwards and since then I have enjoyed not only the opportunity to work on some first class commissions for worldwide clients but I have also had the constant support, guidance and expertise of the whole team. Thank heavens for that exhibition and the potential that they saw in me. I couldn’t wish to have my illustration endeavors better catered for.
T.S Spookytooth @ illustration
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
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'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.
