News flash! Our Toy Residency 2021

Are you an art director in the toy/game market? Want to see what our artists will do during our weeklong LRS-artists only Residency happening the week of March 15th? Our artists will be making absolutely genius toy and game pitches based on my brand-new Make Art That Sells course, My Toy Pitch, that I’m co-teaching with our brilliant toy, game and children’s entertainment agent, Riley Wilkinson.
The My Toy Pitch course goes live in July, so my artists will be getting a jump on the course material early, creating what I know will be some extraordinary toy and game pitches for this hot market that’s looking for innovative ideas illustrated beautifully.
Contact us to view the live showing of the artists’ work in progress on Zoom during the Residency (and give feedback if you like), or view the final work afterwards.
–Want to be a guest VIP for the course? We would absolutely love to have you join us! Contact us!

Spotlight on Anke Rega

Animation by Natasha Dewitz

 

“I have a big love for illustrating products from stationery to pattern to home decor. I use watercolor, and sometimes gouache and colored pencils.
I‘m a color lover and I really like to do light and playful illustrations. I like seeing all the little big things in life. They make me smile and open my heart. And that‘s exactly the feeling i want to give back to you with my art.”
—Anke Rega
Berlin, Germany

 

Latest Work

 

Soon after signing with LRS, Anke landed a fantastic ongoing editorial job with Better Homes & Gardens for their
“Miss Fix It” column.
Anke writes:
“It’s the perfect job for me. I did set design years ago and I love tools.
Also my mum has always done all the handy things at home and I thought this was really cool as a role model.”

Want to know what happens when agent Lilla gets to work with 6 top artists for 6 days on their picture book pitches? 🎨👑💘👁

Join us this THURSDAY at 12.30 PM ET for our WebinART #3: The Residency

We have a very special (free) WebinART for you this Thursday. Six of my artists and I will have spent the week at our virtual Residency creating their children’s book pitches. We’ll chat live about what they’re working on and maybe they’ll even share a sneak peek.

 

What is our virtual Artists’ Residency?

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 get to mentor them daily for six days while they dive into my latest course ahead of the public launch called My Kid Book Pitch that I’ll be offering in October. How cool is that?
We had originally planned to have the event at my home and garden, but we’ve Covid-ized it and now it’s virtual–6 days of Zooms with the gang. It’s my idea of an agent/educator dream. All this talent for a week!

 

What kind of stories will they write and illustrate?
Creating a special picture book comes from understanding what makes the author unique and then discovering the story they are excited to tell. They will share some of the goodness that they’re working on, their process, and other surprises.
The extraordinary artists in attendance for this Thursday’s Webinart are:
