Illustrators are often freelance workers, but can also work in-house at companies. They may or may not work with an artist representative to secure contracts. Illustrators are commissioned by advertising agencies, design firms, media outlets, non-profits and other companies to deliver artwork for a project. They are often sought for their particular drawing style.
