Our Artists’ Residency: Picture Book Pitches
Above: Banner by Mara Penny

 

Join me as I chat with five of my stellar artists when we take a break from the week-long virtual Residency to chat with you TODAY at 12:30 PM ET. I’ll ask them about their working process, how they magically dreamed up their ideas for their children’s picture book pitches, the hardest part and easiest part of making their pitch, PLUS they’ll possibly show a sneak peek of what they’re working on. It’s not to be missed!

Art directors and editors tell us that they’re looking for author/illustrator book pitches (probs because artists are so cool and imaginative), so we dreamed up our latest caper–our Residency–which is an incredible incubator for five of my artists to work on their authored/illustrated picture book pitches.

I’m in the midst of working with them this entire week while they dive into my latest course (ahead of the public launch) called My Kid Book Pitch that I’ll be offering in October. My six artists will have brilliant and highly original pitches–including texts and sample spreads–finished by the end of the week or shortly thereafter.

Art Directors and Editors: Contact us or simply reply to this email to get your hands on what I promise will be pitches that will shine.

You don’t want to miss this. Can’t watch it live? We’ll send you the link for the replay next week in our newsletter or look for it on the Lilla Rogers home page this Friday.

Meet Katie Vernon. See why art directors from Porsche to Anthropologie love to commission Katie.

Here’s why we went nuts the very first time we saw Katie Vernon’s work: We loved her original style and her mastery of watercolor mixed with a dollop of charming weirdness, and we think this is why so many art directors–from Porsche to Anthropologie–commission her work.

We put together a show of some of our favorite projects that Katie has illustrated, from books, to teepees, to giant maps.
