We are very proud to be representing Mae, an illustrator based in China.
Our English literate Chinese agent Amary is based in Shanghai, is on hand to guide, translate and assist through every stage of the commissioning process, delivering first class commissions to tight deadlines.
Mae graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 2003, she began work as a character designer in Sichuan, China; she then decided to embrace her love of illustration and has been working as a full-time children's illustrator since 2007.
Mae uses traditional media, pencil and watercolour to create texture and light within her enchanting illustrations.
Mae Besom is the illustrator of the #1 nationally best-selling What Do You Do With an Idea? The book written by Kobi Yamada tells a story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world. As the child's confidence grows, so does the idea itself. And then, one day, something amazing happens.
Mae has also just finished illustration the sequel called What To Do With A Problem, out in bookstores from July 1st.
