What the artists say

Dec '12 As an illustrator of 30 years plus, I still enjoy the ongoing relationship and rely on 'Creative Source' to being my first choice when it comes to exposure of my artistic talent to both the 'Canadian' and worldwide clientele.
Anthony Sardinha, member since 2003

June '12 Here's the finished assignment for the Toronto ad agency. 'was a really fun piece. In the end I think everyone is very happy. So I'm very glad I hung in there with you for a 2nd year. Now I gotta get this up on the site!
Jim Starr, PA, U.S. member since 2010

December '11 Of all the portfolio sites I advertise on (five in all), I think yours has the best look... I especially like how well the images display on your page and how quick and easy it is to work with and update my portfolio.
Eric Larsen, member since 2007

May '11 For the second year in a row my CreativeSource direct mail postcard has generated jobs, one from Toronto and one from New York respectively.
Jock MacRae, Toronto

January '10 I landed several illustration jobs for a major US educational publisher, after they found my portfolio on Creative Source!

December '09 There's lots of work out there - it's just a matter of making yourself loud!
Mike Carter, member since 2004

June '09 It has been quite a change from last summer when I really wasn't sure if Creative Source was the right fit for me. This year I built the Big Break card deck into my marketing plans early. Even though this has year has been a little uncertain, the card deck promotion helped me reach new clients. I look forward to participating in the card deck again this fall. David Sones reported ~ I landed three new clients from my Fall '08 postcard, one company from the US and two companies from Canada.

I've been using Creative Source for many years and the ads always pay for themselves. At the moment I'm doing an illustration for the Stratford Festival, thanks to Creative Source.

Things are going wonderfully these days. Work is incredibly busy and I have been getting some really exciting jobs. I actually got a job today from a client that found me on Creative Source website. I also got a job last week from a New York agency that received the Creative Source postcards. I am leaving today for Scotland and back in a week. It is nice to leave on a vacation knowing I have work waiting upon my return.
Jode Thompson Advertiser since 2002

All of my illustration clients have originated through Creative Source or by referral from a Creative Source client.
Norman Stiff

For my first large project from Creative Source, I have been asked to design a full collection for a new Royal Doulton line of miniature figurines. I am very excited about this. Thought I would let you know.
Diane Kolar

Creative Source has worked consistently well for me over the years, especially in the Canadian market. It has reached segments of the art buying community I would never have thought to approach on my own. This year I had two medium sized assignments which came directly from the Creative Source website. Thank you Creative Source!
Barbara Spurll Advertiser since 1986

Having my art on the Creative Source website really paid off recently. A well-known Canadian film company found my work on the CS website and chose me to create a series of illustrations worth several thousands of dollars. (To illustrate a children's portal for "This Hour Has 22 Minutes").
Janet McLeod

Because of Creative Source I managed to find illustration jobs with C.O.R.E. Digital doing conceptual illustrations, educational books with EECI, Inc., and a few other children's books with a company such as Open Book Press.
Noel Tuazon

I'm doing a lot more 3D work these days. Your website allows clients quick access to my latest images. I include the Creative Source address (link) on my outgoing emails. I've recently gained a new repeat client who found my work on Creative Source.
Clive Parkes

The site has been working well for me, I have gotten two jobs from it, the latest one from a publisher in Austin Texas. I have also been recommending the site to other illustrators.
Paul Rivoche

It’s wonderful to reach a wider audience when advertising your work, and creativesource.ca can achieve just that. A US publication used one of my existing illustrations found on the website; no revisions or modifications; how great is that!
Colleen O’Hara

What convinced me to subscribe was the site's layout and ease of use. What's convinced me to keep on subscribing is the great job I got after being on the site for only a short time; the project paid ten times as much as the initial set-up fee (so I guess I'm onboard for at least 10 more years.)
