Book Illustrators for hire in Brisbane

Book illustration is, without a doubt, one of the toughest niches to master as a designer. It requires not just artistic ability, but a distinctive style that will set them apart from other illustrators, a style that should stand the test of time — think Quentin Blake, Maurice Sendak, Eric Carle, and so on.

In addition to these creative skills, illustrators need to understand what appeals to the literary market, especially if they illustrate covers (because make no mistake, readers definitely use these to judge their books). It’s also important to have some formatting knowledge, so the illustrations don’t end up cut off or disproportionate on the page. Finally, professional illustrators need excellent communication skills, as this is a highly collaborative process that requires lots of back-and-forth between them and the author.

The question is, where can you find an illustrator in Brisbane who fits all the above requirements — not to mention your budget? The answer is right here on Reedsy. Whether you’re in need of an illustrated cover design or a full set of illustrations for your picture book, look no further to find the best artistic professionals in publishing!
