Let me show you a few of my favorite picks: from a home spa on a swing chair, to a portrait of Marie Curie…

I’m happy to show you a few favorite pieces by my artists: from body-positivity yoga people, to a big-eyed cat for a board book, to painting on leather. Enjoy!

Katie Vernon

Animation by Natasha Dewitz

I love the cool body positivity people illustrated by Katie Vernon.

 

Sarah Papworth

From “I Know a Woman”, Aurum Press/Quarto

Not only do I love the historically accurate illustrated setting, but the color palette of aqua hues is lovely.

 

Daniel Roode

Campbell/Pan Macmillian

Daniel has a way of creating strong, cover-worthy characters. And the fur!

 

Sarah Walsh

From the illustrated magazine Honest History

I have yet to see a piece by Sarah Walsh that I don’t love, and this is no exception. Sarah paints with such warmth, confidence and a cool yet accessible style.

 

Anke Rega

I love this lush, dreamy piece that Anke created for our Menagerie on creating one’s own spa life. It’s the watery paint and the telling details–cacti, old radio, sleeping cat–that got me.

 

Flora Waycott

Flora writes: “A collaboration is in the works with the talented Namu Leather Goods. I will be painting on a limited number of leather pouches before they are hand constucted by Namu. I have never painted on leather before! It feels so good to try something different – this image shows some practice pieces.”

Always a star with decorative elements, I loved seeing Flora’s work on the textured surface and the muted tones.

 

Kate Mason

I just fully enjoy the delight apparent in this piece by Kate, bursting with charming icons.

Why does our artist Carolyn Gavin get so many commissions to illustrate things like wine labels, Anthro bedding, chocolate bars, and more?

We love our artist Carolyn Gavin, and we’re delighted to profile her today. From chocolate and wine packaging, to Anthropologie bedding, Carolyn’s work adds lush watercolor beauty to any product.

I first became aware of Carolyn’s work many years ago in a tiny paper goods shop in Rockport, Massachusetts. Her journals for Ecojot absolutely floored me–her style was truly original.

There are several reasons why our artists love illustrating for editorial. See new work by our artists for the Washington Post.

There are several reasons why our artists love illustrating for editorial. First, the manuscripts open new worlds to illustrate. Second, concepting adds a rich dimension to the piece. And third, the faster time frame keeps it fresh.

Today, we are delighted to feature recent work by several of our artists for the venerable Washington Post.

Here’s our GIANT ANNOUNCEMENT: THE BIG REVEAL–0UR NEWEST ARTIST!

Do you know what we love? We love signing artists. First, we love following them, then secretly working with them, and then finally announcing them. Why? Because as agents we love getting artists work. We really do. It’s just the way we’re made.

So when we see an artist like BAMBI RAMSEY, and all the amazing work she’s created, we envision her work on brilliantly illustrated books, magical children’s books, very cool editorial work, pretty fabric, happy toys, gorgeous lush floral cards, and just about everything else in the whole wide world.

We are delighted to now represent the brilliantly talented Bambi Ramsey.

Let me talk you through some of my favorite pieces.

 


 

Meet our newest artist, Bambi Ramsey

 

Here’s how I know that Bambi will be busy with commissions: I popped her art into this Bingo board I made for my Make Art That Sells students. You can see that she hits such a vast array of markets, subjects, moods, and more which is what I love to see in an artist’s body of work. I’m so eager to see what her first jobs are!

 

Find Fuchsia Food Fast

When I first saw this piece that Bambi created for a text I wrote for my Illustrating Children’s Book course, I knew I was dying to see her work in children’s books. Imagine what it would be like for the child who is looking through this book–the delight as they notice all the details like the shelf of jams, spotting the cat eyeing the love birds on the second floor, and did you notice the rocket ship in the alley? Contact us to chat about your book project. Let’s make it happen.

 

Bambi and I worked together for a few months before I signed her, and Senior Agent Susan McCabe and I wanted to see how she would do a full page illustration for a farmer’s market. We were also curious to see how she’d illustrate men. Result–> man bun man and flip-flop man. This stunning gem is what she did. Are you beginning to see why we just had to take on Bambi? Plus, she is wonderful to work with, and super-professional from all her years at a whole bunch of art departments.

 

Bambi took a whole bunch of my courses, and we love how each time she took the Children’s Book course, she developed her work in a different direction. Here, Bambi displays her ability to illustrate an historical text, researching period clothing.

 

Bambi crushed it in the Creating Collections for Home Decor course. She’s got such a gift for lettering, as you see above, and also further down this newsletter in the Patti Smith piece. When called for, she’s able to vibe out the color palette that’s right for the market. Here, she’s focusing on watery violet, gold, and black.

 

I always want to see winter holiday in a portfolio, and was delighted to spot this in Bambi’s portfolio. Folk art + winter holiday.

 

I worked privately with Bambi the past few months so that she could create a few more pieces to round out her portfolio. I asked her to illustrate any famous woman she wanted because we’re getting a lot of work for those kinds of images. She floored me with this portrait of Isobelle Eberhardt–a woman before her time–a Swiss explorer who moved to Algeria, dressed as a man, and was a writer and advocate of decolonialization. Not only did Bambi select a fascinating person, but the illustration is drop-dead gorgeous. I literally let out a gasp when I saw it.

 

Bambi already had this piece in her portfolio when I contacted her. I simply asked her to make it a tiny bit more ‘editorial’ by adding text to the cover of the book and scattering some seed packets around the figure, telling a quiet story of gardening.

 

I’m always happy when I see florals in a portfolio. They get work.

 

Patti Smith: The lettering. The intense, gorgeous face. The rich color palette. I mean, seriously, what more do you need? Case closed; let’s sign Bambi. So give us a shout and let’s make it happen with your project.

 

Yup, she was a semi-finalist in our highly competitive Global Talent Search. By the way, in lieu of the GTS this year, we are hand-picking artists from my MATS courses. I love the GTS, but I also am loving the ability to just swoop in and sign an artist I’m loving from class. Stay tuned.

We’ll announce her identity very soon, so stay tuned!

Meanwhile, Happy Canada Day to all our our Canadian clients, artists and friends. Did you know that agent Kim Fleming is from Montreal originally? She sometimes agents in French.

Enjoy some art celebrating Canada.

Congratulations to Flora Waycott!

Flora’s stunning pop-up card for The Museum of Modern Art won a Louie Award for best Christmas card in the boxed category! The prestigious Louie Awards recognize the most outstanding greeting cards marketed in the U.S.

Congrats, Flora!

 

Carolyn Gavin

This is a fun one. Lots of Lovely Art’s gorgeous new art kit subscription box launched this month, fully illustrated by watercolor master Carolyn Gavin. It includes watercolors, markers, brush, pencil and an easy block colour project created exclusively by Carolyn for creating simple landscapes, as well as 3 great projects inspired by Hockney, Hundertwasser and Klee.

 

Hsinping Pan

Happy journals and card sets by Hsinping Pan for teNeues. Coming soon: we’ve got lot of brand new books illustrated by Hsinping to show you.

 

There’s a reason that Trina Dalziel gets so much editorial work:
1) She can draw and concept anything
2) Her style is a clear read, and
3) her art is delicate put powerful and right for pretty much any magazine

Cover of The Mindfulness Journal by Trina Dalziel and card for Papyrus by Helen Dardik. By the way, the flowers on that Helen card are huge honkin’ gems.

 

Clairice Gifford

Not only is Clairice Gifford an illustrator, but she’s a top-notch type designer, having lettered some impressive titles. Here’s a piece she did for Southern Living Magazine.

 

Tara Lilly

Look at these beauties we recently got in! Tara Lilly’s color palettes are charming, yet she always manages to come up with new ones. Plate series for TAG, Ltd.

 

Kendra Binney

You can see why Kendra’s images get snapped up for cards. They are modern and elegant, and easy to send to anyone. Here’s a recent design for Calypso Cards.
