A boutique agency with great talent and personal service

That was my vision when we established in NYC back in 1980. To create a small agency representing world class talent and offering great personal service to clients.

That philosophy has led us to represent a small, elite group of the world's premier professional illustrators, designers, and TV show creators. The artists we proudly represent have been honored with over 600 awards for excellence as illustrators, animation designers and authors. More importantly, they've helped several advertising clients to set sales records, and publishers to sell millions of books.

My specialty is knowing how to help our potential clients to find the right artist, then structure the perfect arrangement between artist and client. As such, I've been involved in thousands of negotiations, and have been privileged to meet the leading genius advertising, marketing, and branding people in the world.

My goal is always to facilitate dealings. A background in psychology affords me the enhanced ability to be a good listener, to understand client needs, and to be able to communicate clearly with them. Having an extensive knowledge of print and electronic media is also of great value to clients. This includes expertise in the diverse worlds of advertising, PR, book-magazine-newspaper publishing, animation/motion graphics , graphic design, licensing, as well as TV property and brand development.

I have enjoyed many enriching, decades-long friendships with clients who rely on me and my talent 24/7 to put out fires for them. Since 1998, I've also been heavily involved with developing and producing television properties, four of which have made it to air. I am one of the very fortunate people in life who truly loves the people I represent and wakes up each day with a passion to help my talent and art buyers alike.  – David Goldman
