Who we represent?

We represent a roster of artists from around the world, who are independent thinkers, driven by what they believe in and enjoy what they create.

Why did we launch illo?

Representation within illustration needs to change. As an illustration agency, we know that we have the power and opportunity to work closely with some of the most influential names across commercial markets. We are well-aware of this responsibility. It is important to use our platform and ensure we do our very best to pitch artwork and stories that are truly representative of modern-day artists. Illo strives to represent quality cultural content, in hope of making mainstream media more inclusive towards global artists and their artwork.
