AOI Membership

"The AOI have been invaluable to my career as an illustrator. I never hesitate to contact the members department if I have a query about a job. Their extensive knowledge of the industry is priceless and has guided me through foreign contracts, assigning licenses, quoting fees and all other aspects of illustration. I highly recommend joining the AOI to every illustrator." David Doran

"In the life of a freelance illustrator we all need support, someone guaranteed to be there, someone who knows everything from pricing to professional practice to preparing portfolios, for me that's The AOI. They are always first port of call on a tricky pricing negotiation (quick, clear advice, every time) and if I ever needed legal advice, I would trust matters in their hands. In 10 years as a professional illustrator I have always seen The AOI to be pillars of the community, the industry and the careers within it." Ben the Illustrator

"I joined the AOI 18 months ago and they have been an indispensable part of my business since. I must say I do regret not joining earlier in my career, I can think of many occasions in which there valuable advice and support would have helped me greatly in the past. Clients often want a quick response about rate and fees and the AOI have never let me down with their efficient service and the staff often go over and above to help. I have also had some difficult contractual and legal quandaries this past year and the AOI have helped me every step of the way. I would suggest the AOI to any illustrator with or without an agent, they are a fantastic institution." Tom Hovey
