Being very selective about whom we represent, ensures the work we provide is captivating and distinctive to meet our customer's needs.

Over the years, we’ve worked with virtually every major magazine, newspaper, design firm and advertising agency in the world.

We changed our name from Anna Goodson Management to Anna Goodson Illustration Agency.

We decided we’d no longer represent photographers to focus, exclusively, on representing illustrators.


We Illustrated two major advertising campaigns.

Anna makes a name for the agency, putting it on the map with its first two international campaigns. The first, for a Toronto-based dating service, Lavalife, featured illustration in NYC subways and on billboards throughout North America. A worldwide campaign for IBM was No. 2. The word was out. Photographers, illustrators, and clients started flocking to the agency.


Sylvie Hamel joined our agency after a 15-year PR career at Optimum Public Relations.

Today, Sylvie continues to be the main liaison between clients and illustrators.


Anna signs on more illustrators and photographers and builds the agency.

Anna’s brutal first years in business began to pay dividends. After lugging around heavy portfolios to creatives across Canada and the US, illustrators with the agency started getting offers.


Anna Goodson Management set out to make a name for itself as a reputable agency in the illustration and photography industry.

Facing the agency’s biggest challenge–getting artists to sign on in its fledgling years–Anna was turned down by nearly everyone she approached. With dreams of going international, Anna cold called prospects while crisscrossing North America. She convinced a handful of unknown photographers–and one illustrator–to join her virtual agency.


With only a black & white laptop, flip phone and a dream, Anna launched her start-up, Anna Goodson Management.

After working her way up the ranks in an ad agency to account director, then taking a job at a fashion photography agency, Anna striked out on her own to start an agency that represented illustrators and photographers in the second bedroom of her apartment. No too long after, Anna’s intuition, led her to launched her first website before most of her clients even had access to the Internet.

Anna Goodson

President and Founder of Anna Goodson Illustration & Motion, Anna had the idea of launching a virtual illustration agency before most people had access to the web.

For over 20 years now, Anna has been passionate and innovative about the illustration industry and the artists she represents.

As one of the most respected agents in her field, Anna continues to inspire and motivate those who cross her path.

Sylvie Hamel

Her warm and upbeat personality, combined with her passion for illustration is what sets her apart.

She is professional, dependable and organized and a pure joy to work with.
