Notebook 21 December 2015 | ILLUSTRATION
The best stock illustration agency that I’ve come across is Ikon Images who’ve been around now for a couple of years. As their blurb says, “Ikon is London’s newest and most exciting specialist source of stock illustration. Working with a select group of today’s most sought after artists Ikon is committed to delivering you the very best in contemporary illustration.” They have some brilliant and renowned illustrator’s on their books including some of my favourites such as Grundini (above, and below in descending order), Adam Howling, Ian Whadcock, Nick Shepherd, Otto Detmer, and Andrew Baker. Of course, it’s always better to commission original illustration, but if budgets and deadlines leave you struggling then Ikon is a great resource to turn to.
