I am an agent for a small group of artists. They work as illustrators as well as selling original paintings and prints. Much of what we do is based on a long tradition of science fiction and fantasy, and that in particular involves selling originals for which there is a growing collectors’ market. There is also romantic and literary fiction especially now that we have a large number of stock images.
I also work as a freelance rep for Arena, the illustrators’ agents. Much of this involves children’s and YA books – an area which seems to be going through its “golden age”.
