Children’s book illustrators

Children’s books have long called upon illustrators to help bring to life magical tales of adventures, mishaps, and moments of love and laughter. From Roald Dahl to Quentin Blake, Dr. Seuss to Beatrix Potter, these images are just as ingrained in our minds as the narrative. For stronger readers, they add flavour and depth to the tales, while for those who haven’t quite mastered the ability to read, illustrations help to introduce books to this new and intrigued audience. Children get bored easily, and illustrations help to keep their young minds active and engaged. At The Big Red Illustration Agency, we understand just how important children’s book illustrators are, and have a wide variety of talented artists working with us in order to meet your needs. Whether you’re looking for artwork that explores fairy tales or adventure classics, cartoon strips or real-life depictions, we’ve got the artist you’re after. The results will be unique, fun and affordable, tailored exactly to the age group you’re writing for. They say never to judge a book by its cover, but we know that so many readers do. Therefore it’s crucial to get this opening image right – it is what will stand out from book shelves, and cries out to an impressionable little mind “read me now”. No matter what style you’re after, we have an illustrator who can achieve what you’re after for your cover, and get your book the attention it deserves from the outset. They can also help you put together your illustrations for every page inside too, developing a completely one-off, spell-binding narrative.
