Announcing Sarah Papworth, one of our newest artists!

Sarah Papworth, one of our newest artists, was a student in my Make Art That Sells courses who I had my eye on for quite a few years. (The cool part is that I get to watch the artistic growth of my students.) So naturally I was delighted when she entered our Global Talent Search, and then, when the judges chose her for the third round.

I want to introduce her to you, if you are not already familiar with her incredible work. Get ready to see lots of her work out in the world. I am quite sure that she’ll get flooded with commissions because of her mastery of varied media and diversity of subject matter. See her at work in her studio here.

 

 


I hope you enjoyed the show! Want great art for you project? Don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d be delighted to assist you with any of your art needs. Get to know us here!

Our Retreat Recap! See how we have fun while schmoozing with art directors.

We were thrilled to host our 5th Annual Artists & VIP Retreat at my home a few weeks ago. I’d love to share some of the highlights with you.

Above: Anke Rega, of Berlin, shows some of the artists a nifty way that she makes masks and layers on Photoshop.

Here’s the loveliness that was on Anke’s screen.

Below: Meet one of our newest artists, Åsa Gilland, who traveled from Indonesia for our event. Here, she shears some denim on craft day.

Here I am salivating over Sarah Walsh’s art at our one-on-one speed dating. People, it’s all about the shoes, let’s face it.

Tracy Shaw, Art Director, Jimmy Patterson Books, NYC, delighted us with her presentation on assigning book illustration.

I’m all about feeding my guests well. That lovely sloth plate was illustrated by Rebecca Jones forPetit Monkey.

We were honored to host Megan Gandt, Managing Art Director, Compendium, Seattle, and Ceci Butler, Designer, Design House Greetings, Minnesota. Their insights into their respective industries were illuminating.

We devote a load of time at the Retreat for the artists to do teach-ins, where they show an art supply they love, share a tech hack, etc. Here, artist Jennifer Potter (San Francisco) generously shows her speedy way to make technical pattern repeats.

I hope you enjoyed the show! Want great art for you project? Don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d be delighted to assist you with any of your art needs. Get to know us here!
