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
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
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

Igor Guinau - Creative Manager, Tommy Hilfiger
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.
Kelley Cunningham , Art Director, Highlights High Five
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.
Ian Lanksbury - Design Director, Radley Yeldar London
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
Stacey is a perfect communicator and is always on top of any issue that we may have.
Chris Beelitz, Edwin & Chris - Germany & Australia
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
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
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
It was really great for our team to meet with Jacqueline last night. The event was a great success, with both our hosts and guests commenting on Jacqueline’s amazing illustrations. Thank you again for all your help, we hope to work with yourself and Jaqueline again on future events.

With a fabulous selection of artists and a staff that is always on the ball, IllustrationX. makes my dreams come true every time.
Ryan Olbrysh, Art Director, Las Vegas Weekly
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 find working with IllustrationX very easy and the agenting team supply a very quick & professional service. They represent a large selection of good quality illustrators with a wide selection of styles. The website is easy to use & search. I enjoy being kept up to date with their promotional emails & Scrapbook notebooks which give me a sense of the illustrator's personality and help me gauge if they are the right person for a particular project.
Steve Marking - Art Director, Orion Publishing Group UK
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
I have had the pleasure of working with IllustrationX for just over a year now, and it's been a joy! Always friendly and professional, they have provided me with great work and clientele, from the UK and USA especially. I feel as though I'm in good hands!
Lauren Mortimer @ illustration
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
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

Andreas and yourself were a dream to work with, and all of the artwork exceeded our expectations. I look forward to working with you again soon!
Jess Williams - Art Director, AGInteractive
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.
