Where Art is Needed


Well-Known Member
Like a lot of illustrators I like to keep my ear to the ground and find new places/markets where I can sell my skills. I thought it might be useful for us to share the kinds of markets where we've found illustration is needed, to give each other new ideas when it comes to hunting down jobs.

So along with the more well known uses for artwork such as comics, political/editorial cartoons, children's books, and concept art for movies & videogames... other places I've found a demand for artists include:
  • Christmas display companies needing visualisers to sell their idea to their client.
  • Board games and jigsaw puzzles.
  • Big fans of Dungeons & Dragons will sometimes commission an artist to create a visual representation of their character.
Anyone got any others?
