Exciting U.S Signing – Jen Hill
‘Bright has an outstanding reputation for having a discerning eye for artistic talent. I am thrilled to be a part of this group which, over the past decade, has proven to be a premier agency. Bright’s dedication to the development of their artistic talent is peerless. As an artist, I find this attention rare and highly valuable.’ – Jen Hill.
The start of our new US expansion initiative has begun!
We are delighted to announce our first big signing, the enormously talented Jen Hill. This is just the first step in a wave of good news for the agencies fresh and improved initiative in the US.
With over a dozen years in the children’s media circuit, most notably for her illustration work on the Perez Hilton children’s book THE BOY WITH PINK HAIR (Penguin 2011), Jen joins us at The Bright Group ready to get stuck into exciting projects and further create some show-stopping work this year.
‘Under Bright’s management, I’ll be afforded opportunities not just in picture book illustration but in advertising and licensing as well. The possibilities abound, from their firmly established UK reach to the rapidly growing presence in the US market. I have so much to look forward to with Bright!’
Jen goes on to say ‘As a narrative artist who enjoys creating rich worlds layered with storytelling detail, I am naturally drawn to creating picture books. Creating picture books is like the adult version of playing with dolls. There’s always a story behind each character, and it’s exciting to watch it unfold as I get to choose the setting, the decor, the costumes and the cast. I love to paint my worlds with real paint; pixels can do amazing things these days but there is an integrity to using traditional methods that I find deeply satisfying. ‘
Jen has a fantastic blog where you can see her work process and what she’s up to. You don’t have to be a creative to enjoy her doodles!
