Nope! As long as you are not selling or directly profiting off the illustrations then you are free to use them for whatever you want. However, we would love if you cite us!
Feel free to cite us in your field's typical format. Below are some examples of common citation formats used, but use what works for you!

Acknowledgment: Images were provided by the Anthro Illustrated project (<https://anthroillustrated.com>). We thank the Anthro Illustrated team for these resources.
We aim to create illustrations that are ethical, appropriate, and accurate. Sometimes we may need to delay the release of an illustration because our team lacks relevant lived experience or expertise in the particular field requested. We actively seek the input of folks who have relevant experience and/or expertise, which is difficult to coordinate at times due to compounding factors. We also want to be mindful how much advocacy we are asking individuals to do on their own behalf. We do plan to release many more images in the future so if your illustration request hasn’t shown up yet, we are most likely working on it. As a team of volunteer graduate students, we do have limited time and resources. Lastly, while it is rare, sometimes we do not create an illustration because it is outside the theme of Anthro Illustrated or is not appropriate for our audience.
To request an illustration, there is a link at the top of the home page that says “IDEA SUBMISSION”. This link will take you to a form to submit your request. Try to provides as many details for your request as possible, as this helps us tremendously in communicating with our artist and makes it more likely that we will publish an illustration that you love! We greatly appreciate reference images as well.
To provide feedback, use the "IDEA SUBMISSION" form. Check "other" for your submission reason and provide your feedback in the space provided for submission descriptions.
If you are an artist and would like to submit an illustration for our consideration, you can use the "IDEA SUBMISSION" form to submit your art. Please note that we may decide not to feature your work, simply because it may be outside of the theme of Anthro Illustrated or it may not be appropriate for our audience.
Our current (and tentative) plan is to release a new set of illustrations each January and August, corresponding with the start of the Spring and Fall semesters.
We are looking for volunteers to help with reviewing illustrations for technical accuracy and to provide perspectives based on intersectional lived experiences. We are also looking for volunteers to translate the English text in some of the illustrations to other languages. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and include a little bit about yourself.
Liam Gleason (they/them), who founded the project, uses their personal funds to pay for the illustrations and the website. We appreciate the generous offer to donate, however we are asking people to donate to help fund organizations such as BLM, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Transgender Law Center, First Nations COVID-19 Response, and National Immigration Law Center (or other organizations in your local area). Illustrations are a fantastic way to show diversity, however, we think it is important to put our funds toward supporting efforts that can allow us to see this diversity more in our institutions.
Data rights and privacy are important to us. In the future, we will have an optional survey to get feedback about how these illustrations are being utilized, which will be purely to assist us with providing more useful illustrations in the future.
