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.

Ryan Olbrysh, Art Director, Las Vegas Weekly
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
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

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!

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.

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!
Decue Wu @ 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

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
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
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
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
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.
Stuart Holmes @ illustration
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

We had the first exhibition of the Nippon paint underground artworks in Beijing last week & the feedback was great from the audience. Thanks, we will have the same event in Guangzhou and Shanghai as well, we would love to invite you to be there if you are able.

Stacey is a perfect communicator and is always on top of any issue that we may have.
Chris Beelitz, Edwin & Chris - Germany & Australia
I've hired four different artists from the excellent group of illustrators that IllustrationX represents, and have had great results each time. The jobs always go smoothly. There is a great range of artists and styles here. When searching for the right talent for an assignment, this is one of my "go-to" sites to check out. I plan on using my favorite artists again, and also look forward to trying new artists in the group.
