For Anyone Who Has Ever Loved a Pony —

NewTack Strategies is now seeking licensees for the artwork of Norman Thelwell.

Norman Thelwell, one of the most popular cartoonists to have worked in Britain in the 20th century, is well known for his humorous illustrations of ponies and horses, and all things relating to the countryside. He work is perhaps most synonymous with little girls and their fat ponies. Thelwell was also a serious landscape artist, painting in watercolor and oils. With an art library of more than 1,000 images, his timeless humor is still very recognizable today, and much beloved by the equestrian world.

The artwork invites you to laugh along with Thelwell’s invaluable advice to aspiring equestrians on how to get into the saddle and stay there. Each cartoon is illustrated with sharp clarity & zany humor. The adventures of Penelope and her comic pony Kipper are current for a new generation of young riders and enjoy nostalgic appeal for their parents.

The artwork of Norman Thelwell is now available for licensing in the Americas and Caribbean exclusively through NewTack Strategies. We are seeking licensees across a variety of categories including apparel, accessories, gifts & novelty, stationery, collectibles, veterinary, special collaborations and more.

Sam Smith Wins Grammy Awards for “Stay with Me”

By avoiding what appears to be a clear case of copyright infringement, settling out of court looks to be the wise course for all. Singer Sam Smith’s Grammy-winning “Stay with Me” bears more than a passing similarity to Tom Petty’s 1989 hit “I Won’t Back Down”. Representatives for both singers came to an amicable agreement in late 2014. With Sam Smith’s singing career on the rise, Tom Petty could be collecting royalties for years to come. One could say in this case, it paid to “Back Down.”
