Some Notes.

Please read before continuing to the list.

An agent’s place on this list is not an endorsement. I do some minimal investigation into each agent’s credibility before listing them, but it is your responsibility to research agents.

Some of these agents represent more than what is listed here. But, since this list is geared specifically to illustrators, I have not included that additional information. Those details are available on each agent’s submission page.

Author/illustrator is a creator who specializes in both writing and illustrating. Some agents are only interested in manuscripts for visual works (picture books, graphic novels) from authors who ALSO illustrate. I’ve tried to indicate agents who are interested specifically in author/illustrators.

I will update this list as much as time allows, but it may not always be up-to-date. Be sure to research agents before querying.

Questions? Please e-mail me.
