Just wondering how many illustrators have agents?;how you got them, and if it makes sense to do so? At the moment i just tout my wares via my site.
Nice work dude! I've asked this question many times on NT and no one seems to want to answer.
I think it definitely makes sense if you want to illustrate fulltime or if you suck at the business side of freelance art.
I've been looking for a rep with no luck yet. :(
do they pick you? i don't like the idea of being 'selected'. f-knows, just thought it woas worth asking. nice site PixelF.
Well, I'm not exactly sure how it works. I think most illustrators send out samples to rep and if they like you and your work then you have a rep.
Very nice work D.
I never bothered with an agent but I had concidered it for a hot minute. My illustrator friends have horror stories with certain agents. Most get you the dreaded storyboarding jobs which yeild good money but hyper-stress deadlines. Often they are not worth it. But the experience is what you make of it.
So far, my search on newstoday says Jerry Maguire is good.
from what i know most of the REPS want to see some history.. like you have done work and have established clients.. here in denver there is one major rep in town.. that's it.. most of the work they seem to do is for coors.. it does not look that fun.. mainly a commerical rep.. no editorial. I would like to know some of the same answers you are asking also.. I know the rep here in town takes 30 %.. + some reps expect you to pay for promotion..
there is a good book on this stuff that i have.. let me look for it and i will post the title
