Watch it here.

Agent Kim Fleming selected these fabulous images for you today. What a stunning range of products for which our artists were commissioned to create art. Enjoy!
Contact us to assign or license art. We’re happy to help you find the perfect artist or gorgeous images for your project.

 

This is my most favorite recent book. I was blown away by the art and text. C = Choose compassion, D= Discussing differences, P = Practice peace, R = Resist rumors. This book will change children’s lives and help create a new, even more kind and progressive generation.

 

Pairing big ideas like generosity, respect, and joy with the letters of the alphabet, Letters to Live By is a beautiful picture book that encourages children to make the most of each day and leave their mark on the world.

Here’s a pretty 1000-piece puzzle illustrated by Venice artist Marco Marella called Cities of the World (Legami). How fun would this be to do?

Do you like getting gorgeous postcards? A survey. Plus Sarah Walsh’s brand-new puzzle.

Personally, we love getting mail and we love sending you our pretty postcards with our artists’ latest and most gorgeous work. We’ve scaled way back due to Covid, but we’re thinking of rebooting the card mailings. Loads of our art directors tell us they love them, save them, and pin them to their walls.
Here’s the rub: We know lots of you are still working from home, so we wondered if you’re getting your business mail. Susan and Kim called around and got a mix of responses. Some of you are going into the office sporadically and getting your mail; some of you are back in the office full time, and some are getting your mail forwarded to home.
So we thought: let’s do a poll. We’d love to hear from you.
Above: Our postcard front, mailed in July of this year to our art directors, editors and others who buy art. This card featured cherished original paintings by our artists, past and present.
Above: A recent postcard. Art by Åsa Gilland.
See what I mean? Our cards are pretty.

 

Art directors, editors, art buyers: we’d love to hear from you.
(The poll only lets you pick one answer, just so you know.)
We’re thinking of sending out our pretty postcards again. Which one applies?
I’m back in the office and get my mail there.
I work from home but my mail is forwarded to me.
I work from home and my mail is NOT forwarded to me.
I go into the office about once a week or so and get my mail.
I go into the office like once a month or whatever and get my mail then.
I don’t go into the office. I don’t get my mail. I’m sure there’s a giant pile.
Other.
Above: One of our postcards
featuring Helen Dardik.
Are you an art buyer or editor? Would you like receive our postcards which we send out about 7 or 8 times a year? Or are you already on our mailing list but would like to give us a new address?
Simply reply to this email.

Class starts October 18th!

 

Did you know that I teach a writing course? I created it a few years ago after years of working with artists on their writing their own books and from co-teaching my picture book course, Illustrating Children’s Books (available 2022) and Illustrating Children’s Books Plus with art director/author Zoë Tucker on my e-course platform, Make Art That Sells.
Basically, my philosophy is this:
Creating a unique picture book comes from understanding what makes you unique and discovering the story you’re excited to tell. To help you do this, I’ve created a playful, personalized and structured course called My Kid Book Pitch that will bring out your special story. It’s packed full of quirky worksheets, Magic Cards, fun exercises and weekly interactive LIVE videos that will guide you step by step to create your own special brilliant story – the story that only you can write. I hope you’ll join me October 18th! Learn more or sign up here. Personally, I can’t wait for this one.

Guess who stayed with me for a week? After two years, we all finally got to meet in person!
