Finding an illustration agent shouldn’t be your first priority. An illustration agency will rarely be interested in a brand new artist. Don’t waste your time chasing after agents.
There are much more productive and motivating ways to spend your time at the start of your illustration career. In this video, i’m sharing some of my thoughts on why getting an agent isn’t a priority.
If you are submitting your work to an illustration agency to be considered for representation, you need to be confident that your work is up to a professional standard, otherwise your efforts may go unnoticed. Don’t rush into it.
Getting an outside perspective on your portfolio can vastly improve your work. By seeking out the opinion of someone in the industry, you can get a fresh pair of eyes on your work and they can often see what you can’t.
