Welcome to the illoguild.

Founded during lockdown, the illoguild is a collective of kids book illustrators from around the world learning and growing together. We offer fresh eyes, critique, and industry knowledge in our monthly review, which enables us all to grow rapidly. This is where we share our treasure and help you grow, too.

Inspired by the professional progress we made together in just one year, we decided to share all of the things that worked for us and helped us land:

book projects, illustration agents, literary agents, adoration from art directors, social media growth, a wholesale business, exciting projects and unveiled skills we didn’t know we had.

We share our treasure with you

Newsletter subscribers will receive our monthly round up, packed with all the things we covered in our review and our top tips for the month ahead.

We share our library of FREE resources on Instagram.

Please come and send us your favourite GIFs on Twitter.
