I got a wonderful email this morning from Prodigar, an Artist Agency and Picture Library who represent Artists around the world (prodigar.com). They are interested in representing me. It's always thrilling when someone loves my art. So, now I'm trying to find out more about them. This is a new company located in England. I would love to know if anyone has worked with them or heard of them and hear your experiences. Thanks a bunch!

Thanks! It is great to have someone interested. There are times I think I really suck, so it's always good to get outside confirmation that I don't. :D

Run away. There are a number of red flags on their submissions page. They also require everyone to register before even viewing their client artists. Not good. I would copy and paste the concerning wording but the web site won't allow it. That in itself is another red flag.

Their wording is suspiciously similar to the Renaissance Artist Agency and Picture Library that is now out of business. And they came into being at around the same time the other one disappeared in 2013.

Thanks so much! I'm at the high end of the roller coaster today as I also got a signed contract from a publisher to illustrate a picture book. Hmm, I guess I should go and announce that. Thanks so much for your vote of confidence. Always appreciated.

Thanks a million, Wendy, for confirming my suspicions. I was not happy to see that I'd have to register just to see the artists they are currently representing. I also was not happy with some of their wording. I really do appreciate you taking the time to help alleviate my angst.

I hope you are all enjoying the holidays.
