Now is the best time to get your work seen by clients before January. There are three directories available: Advertising, Editorial and Publishing, providing hundreds of contact details of illustration commissioners. Each contact includes information about their identity and the style of illustration they are interested in, to enable you to contact commissioners appropriate for your own work.
The handbooks are each priced £25 (AOI members) and £33 (non-members) and all are accompanied by an Excel spreadsheet on CD Rom of contacts addresses and pre-formatted labels for printing. You get 10% off if you buy all 3 at once.
You can buy at www.theaoi.com or call 020-7613-4328
I am going to include a new category for live comissions, and to showcase commissioned work by current and ex students.
Send any images or news through to ‘The Department of Illustration’ facebook page and we will include them (and your contact details) on the blog.
