Stacy Curtis makes switch to illustrator

Stacy Curtis
A couple of months after being laid off from his editorial cartooning position at the Times of Northwest Indiana, Stacy Curtis has confirmed reports that he is making the transition from editorial cartoonist to children’s book illustrator. Today he has signed Shannon Associates to represent him.

While sitting at my desk at The Times, I wished I had time to do something more creative and fun like illustrate children’s books, and possibly write and illustrate my own children’s books.

Even though, I’ve heard time and time again how hard it is to get an illustration representative, I decided to go for it. I worked really hard to build a strong portfolio and approached a handful of reps, and just for kicks, I sent my work to a couple of the DREAM reps that I had no chance in hell landing.

Today, I signed with Shannon Associates, one of those dream reps.

Shannon Associates is one of the top illustration reps in the world, who will represent my work in many illustration markets, starting with the children’s market.

Shannon Associates represents or has worked on projects such as “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events,” “Harry Potter,” “The Chronicles of Narnia,” “Shrek,” “Star Wars” and most recently, Pixar’s “Cars,” according to Stacy.

You can check out Stacy’s illustration portfolio that he maintains on his web site.

Congratulations to Stacy. First class work!
