We’re getting lots of great jobs…

Dear Economy,

We are not intimidated. We are doing lots of great promotions and still getting lots of great jobs. We are hopeful. We are not naive. We know things can change but we need to tell artists and art directors that life goes on. Not all sectors of the economy will be hit.

Yesterday we got a huge job for a major cool retailer for Sarajo to do 50 – 100 illlustrations for a photo shoot for an ad campaign. You’ll see this in early January 2009. Can’t say until then. Here’s a piece of Sarajo’s that helped her get the job:

Today a major credit card company has assigned Matte to do art for a possible cool project. A major tire company has approached us this week for a collateral with an eco/watercolor theme.

Also this week: among other things, artwork by Diane is being presented to Pier 1 for a wine journal, four horoscope illustrations were commissioned for Carolyn by a London magazine, and it’s only Thursday.


  • ooh i LOVE this illustration! all the commissions sound great :) xL
