Towards the end of last year, I had the pleasure of joining the ranks of Anna Goodson Management; an illustration agent based in Quebec, Canada. Anna represents tons of really great illustrators so I am thrilled to be a member of the team.
Each year, AGM produces a series of promotional drinks coasters that are based on a theme. Each illustrator then produces an image responding to that theme. The designs are printed up and sent out to art directors and editors all over the world. This year's theme was the number 20; AGM is celebrating 20 years in 2016. This is a big deal and AGM wanted to shout about it.
For a 20th wedding anniversary you are traditionally given China as a gift, so I used this as my starting point. I love China patterns so this was a great excuse to bust one out. The people and the teapots were added to represent the working relationships that have been built with the agency over the past 20 years.
