GIANT NEWS! We’ve taken on THREE NEW ARTISTS!

Yup, you read that right. We’ve taken on THREE new artists!

It’s like an artist shopping spree around here. When I teach over at Make Art That Sells, I have the enviable job of watching students grow into incredible artists, and there are always many I swoon over.

However, we just couldn’t resist these three stellar artists, who consistently wowed me with their class assignments. All three took my Illustrating Children’s Book course at least once–you’ll see below how brilliant their kid book work is.I bet you’re not even reading this and just scrolling down to see who we’ve picked, and I don’t blame you for a minute! 🤣

Contact us to assign or license art. We’re happy to help you find the perfect artist or gorgeous images for your project!

Please give a big round of applause to Kay Wolfersperger. A grad of SCAD and MATS, Kay’s robust and lively work is a joy to behold. Every time Kay submitted a piece for class, I was consistently wow’d. As an agent, I knew her varied and appealing lettering, smart illustrations of people, and brilliant children’s book illustration work would bode well for a busy and stellar career.

Let me introduce you to Tisha Lee.
When I saw this collection (below) that Tisha Lee created for my text
I Paint Purple for my Illustrating Children’s Books course I knew immediately that I wanted to represent her. It’s that simple. The level of sophistication, painterly mastery, and color palettes were impressive. Sign her up! She’ll have a stellar career garnering some sought-after gigs.

TODAY’S THE BIG REVEAL! It’s our 5th Annual Lilla’s Art Menagerie and we’ve got over 150 brand-new, alluring, gorgeous images to show you, our favorite art directors. Our aim is to provide you with inspiring new work for the themes you look for most.
A few months ago, agents Susan McCabe and Kim Fleming created hugely inspiring trend boards for our artists based on themes and concepts that our clients ask for the most. We let the boards loose on our artists, and boy, did they run with them! You’ll find art that’s perfect for puzzles, loads of stunning children’s book examples, and plenty of luscious card art ready to license, and much more.

 

Art Directors: Many greeting card companies snap up images the first day of our Menagerie (today!), just saying.
Do you commission work? You’ll be sure to be inspired by what you see.
