Employment for visual artists is expected to grow as fast as the average through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. For illustrators specifically working in fashion, employment will likely be dependent on the prosperity of companies and organizations that are involved with the fashion field, such as magazines, newspapers, advertising firms, and fashion houses. The outlook for these agencies is currently only fair due to weak economic conditions. Despite this outlook, the popularity of American fashions around the world should create a demand for illustrators. In addition, numerous outlets for fashion, such as e-zines and retail Web sites, will create a need for illustrators.
