ABOUT SPARX ILLUSTRATORS:
The agency was established in Cape Town in 1998.
Initially representing South African illustrators, cartoonists, animators and storyboard artists, we later started taking on artists from other African countries, including Zimbabwe, Congo and Nigeria as well as a number of European artists.
Our primary focus is on African styles, techniques and subject matter, however many of the artists are highly competent in a range of styles, from slick photorealism to loose quirky cartoons.
The artists work in a range of media from traditional to digital and have their own areas of specialisation, for example people, wildlife, the environment and maps.
Clients brief the artists directly and we guarantee highly competitive rates and the delivery of excellent work on time.
Please browse through the portfolios and let us know if you would like to brief an artist, or alternatively send us a style sample and we will suggest a suitable person for the job.
There is an office in Cape Town and one opening shortly in London.
"What an amazing experience it was working with Allan!
We were all incredibly happy with the quality of his work
and his great "can do" attitude. Not only is he hugely
talented but he's prepared to go the extra mile… so
please will you thank him on our behalf.
Working with Allan has been an absolute pleasure and
we hope to be able to work with him again in the near

Debbie Milne : Future Fact
"Please allow me the opportunity to comment on the
professionalism and dedication with which Malcolm
conducted himself in his dealings with me over the
last few weeks. It was such a pleasure working with
an artist as diligent and time conscience. His grasp
of the initial brief and his execution thereof was flawless
and our client was delighted with the final product. I would
recommend Malcolm for future project within our organisation
(and beyond) any time. Thank you again!"

Julie Farquhar: Inkdesign
"I approached Sparx, to please help me on short notice...
and found a very warm and helpful approach by them.
I was pointed in the direction of Dave Edwards, who was
just as warm and friendly to work with. I had a demanding
deadline for him, which he met ... the result was a work of
ART that I was very proud to hand over as a present ! "
"The illustrator was absolutely fantastic to work with,
and her work was brilliant. Thanks a million, I really
appreciate your help in coming up with such a great solution..."
