The TOY MARKET is a $22-billion industry. With over 3 billion playthings sold worldwide each year it fuels a constant demand for product, packaging illustration and storyboard art. The industry releases new lines twice a year (fall and spring), and all of these products require custom artwork.

Global sales of VIDEO GAMES reached $66 billion in 2010 and the market continues to explode. Sales are expected to hit $81 billion by 2016. American consumers spend more time playing video games than watching videos, DVDs and listening to music. Interactive games are the entertainment choice of the 21st century.

The creative departments involved in the toy and interactive game markets hire custom illustrators to support all phases of product development and packaging—from initial character development and storyboard presentations to rough product presentations and final art. This need is global in scope.
