What do Anaheim, Yamanashi, and Quebec City have in common?

We’re all aching to travel again–the anticipation while packing a bag, the thrill of hopping on a plane and hugging far-off friends once more, so we thought we’d share some charming illustrated maps by our artists in a variety of styles to get you in the mood. I am predicting a huge travel and resort boom for 2022, and that’s great for illustrators who create stylish maps. Enjoy the show!
Contact us to assign or license art. We’re happy to help you find the perfect artist or gorgeous images for your project!

Meet one of my newest artists on Zoom today at 12:00 PM ET. Link inside.

 
One of my favorite things is sharing my love of our newest artists with you on Zoom, where I gush over their art and get to know them better.
We’re excited to invite you to join us for the next in our series of WebinARTs with our artist Erin Vanessa, whose dreamy, translucent, lush watercolors captivate us. After taking a number of my classes and developing her children’s book illustration work, I knew she was ready for representation.

See the meditating mustachioed man and a selection of editorial images picked for you.

At the end of our weekly Zoom staff meetings, Patty, our studio assistant and yoga teacher leads us on a relaxing meditation. We slide back in our chairs, close our eyes, and breathe. Patty says, “Meditation brings us back to our bodies, what’s real and present, and out of our fears for the future.”

 

Agent Kim Fleming selected a number of meditative illustrations she thought you’d enjoy. I love Mara Penny‘s bath scene full of floating fruit slices and flowers and Trina Dalziel‘s mustachioed man and guitar, below.

See the gorgeous work my artists have created for my classes. My courses are on SALE. Download your free Guide.

One of my greatest joys as an agent is being able to mentor my artists and also share that knowledge with our community at large on my course platform, Make Art That Sells (MATS), now in its 8th year. I’m even cool if I’m helping artists who are represented by other agents. Why not? What’s good for one is good for all.

I found all 20 of the most recent artists that we’ve taken on for representation in my MATS classes. Why? Because I’d gotten to know them and witness their evolving brilliance. Scroll down to see the work that my own artists have created in my classes (even after being represented by me), and you’ll get why I love teaching.
I’m happy to let you know that our MATS Annual Spring Sale is on and it’s chock full of great deals. These courses are a fun way to focus your attention on your creativity in this super weird time.
