Where do you go to discover new artists?
It is easier than ever now with social media for artists to showcase their work. I will of course look at Instagram to find new artists, but I also keep an eye on group exhibitions and love to look through all the incredible magazines that I am so happy to see are all still in print! Long live PRINT!!
What would be your dream artist and brand collaboration?
That is a really hard question to answer, as all of my artists have dream clients they would love to work for! All I really want is for the artists to be busy and enjoying the work they are creating. Having said that I would love to work on a collaboration with a brand that I feel is really making an impact to save our planet. Nine of my artists recently worked on a collaboration with Greenpeace, it was incredible to see their creations being used in such a positive, impactful way and being appreciated and shared on social media worldwide.
What project are you most proud of?
I would have to say that rather than a particular project, the thing I am most proud of is launching EVERYONE.
Where do you see Everyone Agency in the next 5 years?
I intend to keep the roster of artists manageable. I currently represent 14 artists and will look to expand, but not to more than 20 artists total. I like to have a hands on relationship with my artists and work with them all individually and closely to nurture their careers to my best ability. I would like to see my client base expanding beyond the more traditional commercial avenues too as there are so many ways in which illustration can be utilised and enjoyed.
