Our Story

Mendola Artists is a family-owned, United States-based illustration agency founded by Joseph Mendola in 1960, before CGI, JPGs, fax machines or even FedX. The agency continues to evolve and expand under the expert guidance of his two sons Tim and Tom. Since the very beginning, Mendola Artists has sought out the best talent from around the globe, establishing relationships with the country’s top ad agencies, package design firms, editorial publications, and toy companies. Whether they be masterful oil painters or innovative CGI animators, Mendola Artists currently represents over 100 of the world’s most accomplished illustrators.

Our Team

Tim Mendola

Agent
tim@mendolaart.com

Tim took over the family business back when paintings were actually hand-delivered to art directors and portfolios consisted of 8×10 transparencies. He has led the agency’s transformation into the technological age of tablets, Instagram, and zoom meetings. When he’s not manning the helm at the firm’s intergalactic headquarters in SoNo, Tim enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters and playing golf in Redding Connecticut.

Nancy Moore

Operations Manager & Agent
nancy@mendolaart.com

After over 20 years at the company, Nancy has earned an honorary place in the Mendola family. With a background in the fine art world as a gallery owner and director, she really understands the nitty gritty of running a creative business and has a sharp aesthetic eye. Outside of the office, Nancy enjoys theatre, visiting museums and engaging with her church and Hell’s Kitchen communities.

Tom Mendola

Vice President & Agent
tom@mendolaart.com

Tom joined his brother Tim’s mission to take their family business to the next level. His own creativity makes him our go-to for sourcing new talent and predicting the latest illustration trends. When he’s not in his art and plant-filled office, Tom enjoys cooking six course tasting menus, making digital art, engaging in sports with his son and daughter, hiking and walking his two cats.
