150 Useful Resources for Illustrators

August 9, 2010

(Illustration by Thomas James)

Last year, I shared “68 Useful and Inspiring Illustration Resources” here at Escape from Illustration Island, which compiled all the resource list posts that had been previously published to make things easier to find. Since then, I’ve been actively seeking out more valuable resources, so an update is long overdue.

Here is a list of 150 incredibly useful online resources for both professional and aspiring Illustrators. There’s plenty here to keep you busy for a while.

Also be sure to check the comments sections of the posts, as many of your fellow Illustrators have shared links to resources that I might have missed.

Happy hunting!

For even more resources, visit EFII’s giant Resource Library and the archives of the Featured Resources series.

      Thanks Teri! You might recognize it from the back cover of the Resource Guide for Illustrators from your ICON6 Goodie Bag.

    Love these so much – thanks for sharing! It will really help a lot of my illustration candidates who are looking for more techniques or inspiration. Keep it coming!

    Thanks, Thomas! I’ve just gotten into your podcast, as I’m just starting to promote my work. I feel amazingly lucky to have discovered it so early. I was just making bookmark folders for all of this kind of stuff and voila, looks like I’ll just need one bookmark now.

    Looking forward to more of the same!
