Hire the best book illustrators in Canada


You've written your manuscript, but you're not equipped to give it the beautiful images it needs, so it's time to hire a book illustrator. But, how do you know who to hire? An illustrator's style is the biggest factor when it comes to picking an illustrator — you want to know they will be able to understand and execute the vision you have for your book. The best way to find an illustrator who “gets it” is to browse through their samples and see if they’ve designed work similar to what you have in mind.


Of course, you also want to keep genre in mind. If you want to hire an illustrator to work on your fantasy children’s book, look for professionals with relevant experience designing for that specific aesthetic.
