The Color of Ink is a searchable data base that makes finding reliable professional illustrators of color from around the world easy.

For illustrators we created a directory where you can showcase your work as well as a community to share, learn and network with other illustrators. If you’re interested in being included on our list of illustrators, please refer to the join page for more info.

We know your time is valuable and our curated directory make compiling a list of qualified Illustrators effortless. You can filter and narrow your search through a comprehensive filter to easily compile a list of candidates that best suit your needs.

The directory is free for artists and free to search and discover talented artists from all over the world. When contacting artists on the directory you are dealing directly with the artists.
