How do you find an illustrator to create a piece of artwork? At present, there are a number of methods: Looking through myriad agents' promotional books; browsing annual competition collections; trying to find that pile of unsolicited illustrators' cards you just had on your desk the other day; searching the Web-for a few hours; asking a colleague. All of these methods can work, but they're all time-consuming and haphazard. What if you need someone to draw salad on a plate with a glass of wine next to it? You could go through the above processes, and - after a while - you'd probably find someone to draw or paint it in the style you wanted.Or you could simply pick up "Big Book of Illustration Ideas 2", flip to the section marked "Food and Still Life," and find pages and pages of illustrators who can draw all kinds of food in all kinds of styles: pencil, crayon, watercolour, collage, and so on, and so on. It's a smorgasbord of illustration ideas. In fact, within these pages are the best illustrators from all over the world, found together in one place along with all their contact information.
