As part of our new “Success Stories” series, we’re showcasing Yodelist creatives who’ve successfully launched email campaigns that not only added exposure, but also brought new and exciting jobs and projects with a wide variety of clients. First up is illustrator Anthony Foronda. Here’s what he had to say about his first two campaigns and the resulting project he’s working on:
“I have had two email campaigns through Yodelist and just received my first illustration project from Cricket Media. I will create 5 spot illustrations for their April 18th issue of Spider magazine. The illustrations will accompany a feature short story about a Ugandan Folktale.”
Below is the emailer that attracted Cricket Media, followed by several more examples of Anthony’s work.
Congrats on the new project Anthony! Looking forward to seeing your work and the story when it’s released.
Anthony Foronda is an internationally recognized award-winning illustrator & designer. He has been chosen in American Illustration, Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles Illustration West, Awarded in Alternative Pick Awards, and the International Luerzer’s Archive’s “200 Best Illustrators Worldwide” Biennial.

Welcome to the brand new Creative Playdate Podcast by Michelle Kondrich, which will also be syndicating on the Workbook blog.
Creative Playdate is a great new interview show that fills some essential voids in the creative podcast community, namely the entry of a really great female host focusing on the challenges of being a creative professional AND a parent, which is a topic that is very much overlooked in the creative industry. However this is NOT a parenting podcast, and Michelle already has some great guests recorded and waiting to release, such as Jessica Hische, Jennifer Daniels, Keith Negley, Daniel Hertzberg, Jaime Zollars and more! Stay tuned and click HERE for the podcasts!
In Michelle’s words:
Creative Playdate is here!
I’ve been sitting on this and hinting about it and talking about it and now it is live in the world. Thank you to everyone who has supported the show so far and thank you for listening. If you enjoy it, please be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode. The show is also being syndicated at Workbook.com/blog.
Episode 1 is an interview with the incredibly talented Lucy Knisley. She is a New York Times Bestselling author, not to mention a prolific cartoonist. Her insightful comics can be found on her website. Together we discuss her use of comics as a way to process the world and, now, to process motherhood and about how difficult it can be to work in the same house as a small child.
We’ve made it back to LA and had a BLAST at PDN’s Photo Annual Awards!

Recently we here at Yodelist have started listening to photography podcasts to get a better feel of the industry and where it’s going. Here are a few that have piqued our interest:
What podcasts do you listen to that we missed?
Everything you ever wanted to know about the agent/photographer relationship. This is a tell all, show all, know all regarding the ins-and-outs of this very critical strategic alliance. The right relationship is an extraordinary partnership where all parties feel mutually successful and rewarded. The wrong relationship can be highly detrimental to the path of an artist. This is not a relationship that should be taken lightly. This workshop will provide insight as well as concrete worksheets and checklists that will be informative to both the photographer seeking marketing consultation as well as the seasoned pro who is looking to enhance and support an existing agent relationship.
Who should attend this event:
- Industry professional who want to learn more about the photographer/agent relationship.
What will be covered:
- Is there a industry standard artist rep. agreement?
- What does an equitable and fair agency agreement look like? We’ll show you.
- We’ll address the biggest misconceptions photographers have about signing with an agent.
- Critical business areas to know, understand, and negotiate upfront before signing with a agent.
- How to negotiate on your own behalf and protect your business interests.
- Alternate ways to get your work seen outside the traditional representation model.
- Portfolio Preparation
- And, we’ll answer any and all questions.
