Happy birthday Lilla

Being an illustrators’ agent can be a tough business – all that negotiating, chasing payment and deadlines and worrying about your artists. But it has its benefits at least once a year

As we discussed in our Feb issue, being an illustrators’ agent can be a tough business – all that negotiating, chasing payment and deadlines and worrying about your artists. But it has its benefits at least once a year

We all look forward to getting cards on our birthday but when your colleagues are also talented imagemakers the quality of card goes up quite considerably. Each January, agent Lilla Rogers of Lilla Rogers Studio receives a rather lovely crop of cards from the illustrators she represents. Shown here are a few of this year’s bunch (above card by Trina Dalziel).

Being the cynics we are we asked Lilla whether this was a brief that she set her artists but, no “they actually just send them to me every year,” she says. Which presumably goes some way to make up for all the hassle agents deal with throughout the rest of the year.
