The Big Book of Illustration Ideas: 2 

By Roger Walton

How do your find an illustrator to create a piece of work? At present, there are a number of methods: looking through myriad agents’ promotional books; browsing annual competition collections; trying to find that pile of unsolicited illustrators’ cards you just had on your desk the other day; searching the web — for a few hours; asking a colleague. All of these methods can work, but they’re all time-consuming and haphazard. What if you need someone to draw some salad on a plate with a glass on wine next to it? You could go through the above processes, and — after a while — you’d probably find someone to draw or paint it in the style you wanted. Or you could pick up “The Big Book of Illustration Ideas,” Flip to the section marked “Food and Still Life” and find pages and pages of illustrators who can draw all manner of food in all manner of styles: pencil, crayon, watercolor, collage, and so on, and so on. A smorgasbord of illustration ideas In fact, within these pages, you’ll find the best illustrators, from all over the world, found together in one place along with all their contact details.

For ease of reference, illustrators’ work is cataloged by theme: People; Portraits; Food and Still Life; Buildings; Landscapes; Abstract Concepts; Diagrams; and Miscellaneous.
