Pencil was the first illustrators agency created in Spain. Since 2000 they've been representing artists from different countries, recognized by the most prestigious awards and international competitions of the sector, with works published in Europe, America and Asia. Diverse illustration styles are available in their portfolio and far from being guided by trends, they only ask of their illustrators to make us feel deeply moved. The reason is clear: it'?s easy to transmit our enthusiasm for something we believe in. Our job, however, it?s not limited to this aspect as we also produce and coordinate projects where illustration is the basis of final design. Sea of Stories has been representing Pencil for their complete projects since 2010.
