Get ready to swoon. You’re going to see some amazing work for Sarah Papworth’s I Know An Artist book.

Every so often, one of my artists sends us work so magnificent that even after all these years of being an agent and seeing lots of top-notch work on a daily basis, I am absolutely blown away by the power of the work.

Sarah Papworth’s incredible book I Know An Artist (Quarto) is a masterpiece of imaginative work; each artist is portrayed with a different, tuned-in vibe: the color palette, the subject matter–even the lettering reflects the spirit of the artist.

I hope you enjoy Sarah’s work, and should you wish to buy the book, you can do so here.

Contact us to assign or license – we’re happy to help!

A recap of Susan’s fanastic trip to NYC

What happens when you set agent Susan McCabe loose in NYC to visit art directors? Watch and see some pix from her visit last week!

Animation by Natasha Dewitz

 

Intrepid agent Susan McCabe in Manhattan

 

The art directors loved getting these luscious magazines of our artists’ work for children’s books and for greeting cards.

AD’s: Contact us and we’d be happy to send you a copy!

 

Susan visited with folks from a number of publishing houses…

Here’s Liam Donnelly and Tracy Shaw of Jimmy Patterson Books. They’ve done a few books with our artist Hsinping Pan.

 

Sneak Peek! Susan shot this photo of the proofs of Hsinping Pan’s gorgeous new book with Jimmy Patterson entitled Bigger Words for Little Geniuses, due out September 2019. Speaking of language, Hsinping is fluent in English and Taiwanese, having lived in both Los Angeles and Taipei.

 

Helen Dardik & Carolyn Gavin’s watercolor workshop

Susan absolutely loved attending Helen’s and Carolyn’s fantastic watercolor workshop in Brooklyn on the same weekend.
Helen and Carolyn will be teaching more workshops! Check out www.helendardik.com/workshops for info on future workshops.

 

Noted show

The hot new stationery show, Noted, in Brooklyn, was a success! Here, Susan visits with the lovely folks at Seedlings (with Anne Bentley cards.)

It’s always wonderful to see projects fully realized. Susan snapped this shot of these brand new card sets for Roger La Borde by Kendra Binney, which were revealed at the Noted show.

NEW ILLUSTRATED BOOKS by our artists: Truth and daring, birds, and happiness.

Today I thought you might enjoy a selection of recent book commissions, and a bit about why each artist was asked to illustrate that particular book.

Contact us to assign or license. We’re happy to help!

 

Plus, stay tuned for our new artist reveal!

 

Sarah Walsh

 

Truth & Daring – A Journal for the Thoughtful & Bold  (Chronicle Books)

This illustration commission was a match made in heaven–Sarah’s gorgeous and varied lettering was beautifully paired with Truth and Dare prompts. The variety of lettering design and layout keeps the book interesting. Buy it here.

My First Book of Birds (Walker Books)

Not only can Zoe paint gorgeous birds, but she’s also able to depict them with great specificity, as was needed for this charming instructional book.

Buy it here.

 


Nature Journal (Breathe Special (UK))
and
Here’s why Trina was asked to illustrate these two books: Both her lettering and line work are delicate and calming–a good fit for both books.
Trina writes:
The Nature Journal was developed from one of my own ideas which gave me the opportunity to do a lot of hand-lettering. I also created an original digital font for the headings. Buy it here.
For the The Happiness Diary, I received the text and rough suggestions of page layouts. I worked from there developing a color palette, decorative borders, spot illustrations and then I illustrated the double-page spreads to accompany the text. Buy it here.

BIG NEWS! Plus animated Hank Williams, Susan’s going to NYC, and more!

We love photographing our artists’ illustrated products as they come in. Hope you enjoy them!

Plus, our big news is…we have taken on a new artist! I scooped her up from seeing her work in my MATS courses over the years. Her work has a fresh look and was often was selected to be in my MATS reviews. We’re getting her up on the site, and once that’s done, we’ll announce who she is.

 

ART DIRECTORS: Agent Susan McCabe will be in NYC May 16-19 showing the new artist’s work plus our brand-new collections of available card art and our children’s book portfolio of the very best work. Be sure to contact Susan to schedule a visit. Not in NYC? We’re happy to send you a magazine-style portfolio of the card art or the children’s book art to keep for reference.
