Inspiring Illustration
Who we are

Welcome to Kids Corner, an area of our website dedicated to children’s publishing.  We’ve brought together the artists from Meiklejohn and New Division to create a fabulous collection of illustrators who work in the world of children’s books.

Kids Corner is home to a brilliant mix of artists ranging from award winning illustrators to brand new talent.  So whether you are looking to commission for pre school, young fiction or young adults, to entertain, educate or inspire take a look through this marvellous collection and see what our artist's talents have to offer.


Claire Meiklejohn is the second generation of Meiklejohns to head up the agency, some might say she was raised on illustration. After earning her creative stripes in the world of arts management she took the reigns of the family business a decade ago and has transformed the agency to meet today’s creative demands.

Louise Tummon worked as an art buyer in some of London's top advertising agencies before joining the agency. Louise has a wealth of experience in project management and ensures all our projects run smoothly. Louise also has a keen eye for emerging talent and is always on the look out for new illustration stars.

Alice Wilkinson curates our blog and newsletter and spreads the word about the wonderful work of our fabulous artists. She also helps our artists to develop their portfolios. Whether it’s tackling a new subject matter or pushing their style in a new direction, Alice nurtures our artist’s talents to help them grow.



How we work with our clients

We work across all areas of children's publishing and we understand each genre has different needs. Some of our clients know exactly who they want to work with and they’re ready to brief, others just have the beginnings of an idea which they want to explore, we love working with both. So, whatever stage you are at in your project the best thing to do is to give us a call or drop as an email and we’ll be able to help you out.
