We’ve taken on a new artist! It’s someone you know and love.

We’ve got big news to share. Our very own LRS agent, lovely Kim Fleming, is actually a talented picture book illustrator with a whopping twelve books under her belt. She’s an agent by day and an illustrator by night.
Her work just got stronger and stronger, and we couldn’t (and didn’t want to) resist. So today, we’re proud to announce the big news!
Contact us to assign or license art. We’re happy to help you find the perfect artist or gorgeous images for your project!
(Yes, Kim is still a devoted full-time agent!)
New Artist: :Kim Fleming
Providence, Rhode Island, USA
Q: What do you love about illustrating picture books?
Kim: I get to create magical worlds that children can lose themselves in. And it makes me a better agent because I understand the picture book process.
Q: How do you stay inspired?
A: I always try to keep learning, whether it’s new art techniques, the craft of writing, or ceramics!

A: Yes! I’ve been working with Lilla on it and it’s almost ready to go!
Q: Exciting! What’s it about?
A: Without giving too much away, it’s about overcoming fear.

Our Residency and gorgeous art!

So much goodness to share this week.
  1. Our Author/Illustrator Residency is underway.
  2. New artist announcement coming next week!
  3. My Illustrating Children’s Book Course begins this coming Monday.
Read on, enjoy, and call us to assign.

One of my most favorite things in the world is to help top artists make even more brilliant work, develop their unique gifts, and broaden their career opportunities. So with that in mind, we were incredibly excited to offer our Picture Book Writing Residency to a whopping fourteen of our artists, based on my course My Kid Book Pitch, focusing on writing children’s picture books.
Why encourage artists to write picture books? They are one of the strongest categories in illustration right now. Editors are specifically looking for authored/illustrated picture books for the unique vision that they provide. We’re commissioning them like crazy, they pay very well, and you get to devote months to a particular project in your style.
The ideas are fresh, sometimes delightfully quirky. Many of the attendees focused on topics like diversity, neurodiversity, gender fluidity, STEAM, social/emotional issues, and more.
It was an intensive week with loads of one-on-ones with my artists before, during, and continuing on. Several book dummies are ready to share.
Editors and art directors, we’ll be in touch, but as always, don’t hesitate to give us a shout should you like to see what we’ve been up to.
2022 Author/Illustrator Residency Zoom
BIG NEWS COMING SOON!
Watch your inbox on Monday as we will be announcing our newest new artist!

Here’s some work from the previous Residency &
Kendra’s story tender and imaginative story of two children, one who is afraid of the ground, and one who is afraid of the sky. Through visually gorgeous illustrations of steampunk-style Rube Goldberg-type contraptions, they find a way to connect.
Contact us to learn more!

A historic tale of a brave pioneer, loosely based on a naturalist and scientific illustrator of the 1600’s who travels to the Amazon with her daughter. We follow along as the mother and daughter search for a very exotic and elusive butterfly with help from indigenous people.
Contact us to learn more!
What I love about Mara’s pitch is her ability to tell a laugh-out-loud story about an insecure snail in a cool way that imparts lots of nutty snail factoids. This book celebrates mucous and other gross features such as the dung beetle’s poop.
Contact us to learn more!
My course begins this Monday, May 23rd at Make Art That Sells. My co-teacher, prominent children’s book art director Zoë Tucker and I select work from the student galleries each week for a live Zoom Review. It’s my favorite part of the course, loaded full of specific tips and practical advice.
This is the same course that many of my artists have taken, and in fact, where I find many to represent. Join me! It’s hugely popular, now in its ninth season, and if you sign up now, you’ll instantly receive Zoe’s three beautiful/amusing/though-provoking original texts for the course (she’s a published author of six books) and a Text Chooser doc to help you select a text based on your art style. Hop on over here.

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!
