Our 3x3 Illustration Directory is sent free to art directors and art buyers in America who commission illustration. Available in either print, PDF or as an eBook, the 3x3 Illustration Directory is unique.
First, ours is curated—we only invite those illustrators we feel best represent contemporary illustration. Our small size makes it portable and the sixteen categories make it easy to find illustrators for a given project. It’s an art director-designed directory for art directors. No wonder we’re getting rave reviews from art directors across the country who favor our Directory.

3x3 is a series of publications devoted entirely to the worldwide art of contemporary illustration. Published in the United States and distributed worldwide, we are interested in what’s shaping international illustration. Our tri-annual magazine, juried annual, yearly directory and books provide insight into this world.
Our Mission is to preserve, protect and promote illustration in all its forms. First, we want to preserve today’s illustration by producing printed forms of communication enabling future generations to get a glance at what illustrators were doing during this current time period.
Secondly, we want to protect the legacy of the top illustrators in the field. Our interest is in helping the best illustrators advance their careers by offering portfolio reviews, webinars, conferences and affordable books to help illustrators continue to learn and grow.
Lastly, we want to promote in every way possible the importance, viability and uniqueness of using illustration in advertising, editorial, publishing, corporate, institutional, books and animation. Our juried shows and subsequent printed annuals help accomplish this goal. If you love illustration, then you will want to check out our Shop. Also look for us on the newsstands of leading bookstores throughout the US and Canada as well as Europe and Asia.
