The reason why Charlotte is so busy with picture book work is because she’s able to create dynamic poses with strong facial expressions for her characters, set in busy, loaded spreads.

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

Yup, you read that right. We’ve taken on two 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.

 

We just couldn’t resist these two stellar artists, who consistently wowed me with their class assignments. 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!

 

Animation by Natasha Dewitz
We’re delighted to welcome Maria Gabriela Gama to our group! Her vibrant work depicts charming characters in magical, imaginative scenes. We find that strong colors often do well for artists and when you pair that with detailed environments, you’ve got a winning combination. She’s a gem and you’ll love working with her.
See her portfolio here.

 

Maria Gabriela Gama
São Paulo, Brazil
“I’m a Brazilian illustrator who loves everything colorful.”

 

What illustration job would you love to get (your dream job)?
Any job where I get to represent different cultures and people is my favorite job!

 

What do you listen to while you work?
It depends on my mood. I might watch someone playing games on Youtube, true crime documentaries, or I’ll be listening to upbeat music.

Washington State, USA

 

“I’ve lived my whole life in the Pacific Northwest region of the US. It’s beautiful and full of inspiration, especially for someone who loves to draw. Which is something I’ve been doing since I can remember. Usually, I draw cute things — but sometimes I’ll draw things that I think are cool…cutely.”
Read Brian’s Q&A here.
Please give a big round of applause to Brian Lambert!

 

These days, I primarily find artists to represent in my classes. Brian was one of those students that consistently crushed each assignment. His characteristic bold colors were complimented by his soft, painterly rendering. Plus, he’s an absolute pleasure. I know you’ll enjoy working with him.

 

See his portfolio here.

 

 

 

Hurry! Class starts April 30th. Space is very limited. Join me!

Our artist Helen Dardik emigrated from Ukraine many years ago. She created this image in response to the invasion of Ukraine. It was immediately purchased and Helen donated all proceeds to Ukraine. You can find this piece and more on her Instagram page: @helen_dardik
 

To send help to the people of the Ukraine, here are two organizations you can support:
