Hire an Illustrator




"Hire an Illustrator" is a new project from Little Chimp Society's Darren Di Lieto. Its a portfolio site but with a difference, here's the blurb:

"Hire an illustrator was created by Darren Di Lieto, former freelance illustrator and current editor of the illustration news portal – LCSV4.

The aim of the Hire an illustrator website is to provide art directors and commissioners with an easy to use point of contact for job seeking or available freelancers, along with an easy to use interface for the freelancers to issue immediate updates and edits to their profiles.
Hire an illustrator is not just a portfolio portal. We contact art directors and companies directly via the telephone to promote individuals. We collect samples (postcards or other promotional material) from profiled members to be included in targeted mail shot packs, and a bi-monthly email newsletter is sent out to promote our clients.

We currently target the US, UK and Europe, but we are happy to target any international company. So if you’re an Art director or Commissioner and would like to be included in our voice, mail or email list,
click here.

Although the site is called Hire an illustrator we understand that not every job calls for an illustration, so we also profile animators, photographers, fine artists and designers."


If you're a member of the LCS, you can get a free two week trial membership. It sounds good, so I've signed up, will let you know how it goes! Here's my link:
