A balanced meal is a real challenge in this stacking race game for 2-4 players. Dinner guests take turns piling their platter, morsel by morsel. If your plate topples over, you’ll go hungry.

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.

Animation by Natasha Dewitz
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!
