Brand New Work!

Today, I’m delighted to present you brand new work by my artists that show off their ability to do amazingly charming children’s picture books. It’s about three things: appealing characters, charming settings, and a fresh style. Fun fact: Four of these pieces happen to include dogs.

Contact us to assign your next book or see more. Our artists are a total pleasure to work with, and so are our agents Susan and Joanne. We’d love to hear from you!

What makes a great portrait? More Menagerie Sneak Peeks!

Let’s chat about how my artist Anne Bentley paints portraits so beautifully. She includes only the essential qualities of likeness and leaves out extraneous stuff. There’s a kind of visual efficiency. But then, she goes full-on decorative in the background to tell the rest of the story. Here, she paints the distinctive features of beloved British writer Virginia Woolf–the bits of white under the iris, the slight droop of the lower lid, the long oval face and narrow nose. But then, the gorgeous Bloomsbury-esque wallpaper motifs in the background tell some more of the story. I hope you enjoy seeing some of Anne’s work she painted for our Art Menagerie.

Lilla’s Picks! The family crests.

I give an assignment to my artists every month and this month it was to do a coat of arms for Lilla Rogers Studio. Prepare to smile.

I want this chair and everything. Get ready to gasp.

Seriously, I really want this chair and plates and everything. I can’t wait to license this fantastic new work by my artist Mara Penny. I took her on because of her unique style and amazing color palette. It’s got edge but still is marketable. Be prepared to gasp. Enjoy. Oh yeah, and her lettering.

Hope you enjoyed the show. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to license, buy or commission art for your fabulous project. We are happy to help you!

Carolyn Gavin’s Home Decor Collection

It’s so rewarding to see our artists’ work come to life! Here’s our artist Carolyn Gavin’s gorgeous home decor line for TAG, Ltd.  She has such a masterful loose paint style and adorable quirky lettering. Carolyn created this delightful art in the Make Art That Sells: Creating Collections for Home Decor course.  Lilla co-teaches this class with esteemed colleague Creative Director Margo Tantau.
Artists: This is our LAST session we will be running live. This is your chance to get your work in front of a top art agent and creative director. Class starts today on Monday, August 7th. Don’t miss this opportunity! Sign up here.
Here’s the art board Carolyn designed in our Creating Collections for Home Decor class. We pitched it to TAG, Ltd. and they snapped it up:
Ta da! We’re crazy about this collection that TAG Ltd. created from Carolyn Gavin’s work from her presentation. In fact, that cup on the upper left is on Lilla’s desk holding her pencils.

Check out more terrific products Carolyn has with Anthropologie:

Get your mitts on new work by our artists! Check out these presentation boards.

Art directors: Get your mitts on this work for your amazing products! This is art that my artists did in my e-course Make Art That Sells: Creating Collections for Home Decor. I create 3 trend boards for each home decor course of what I think are the next trends. And the cool part is watching how these brilliant artists translate those trends into their own style, leading the way.
