What illustrators and artist representatives say:

“I found your approach to the business of illustration very inspiring. You are very realistic and positive at the same time. And obviously you know about this tough business.” ~ Al Vesselli


 “Jo Ann Miller has always been an ardent supporter of illustration. Through our work together with The Illustration Conference, we both grew to a deeper understanding of the issues and needs important to illustrators. I believe as Jo Ann does that there is a strong place, and a strong value, for illustration in America.”  
~ Anne Telford, Editor-at-Large, Communications Arts Magazine

In short, she is a trusted advisor.” ~ Art Director/Illustrator/Typographer, Tom White, Nine Surf Studios


"Jo Ann, Thank you for your time, intelligence and insight. I'm very grateful....."  
~ Mark Andresen


"I have known Jo Ann Miller for many years. Several years ago, she introduced me to the Directory of Illustration and pointed out its virtues. I have an overarching promotion and advertising program and I decided in 2011 to dip my foot in the Directory's book and online platform. I told Jo Ann that, in all candor, this would be an experiment for our group and, if it produced results, I would re-up for 2012. In point of fact, it has. I am pleased with the results and I am looking forward to bigger and better projects in the coming years. I would recommend to my fellow artists and agents to give the Directory of Illustration a try. You won't be disappointed.” 
~ Richard Solomon, Artists Representative
