Thomas Kinkade signs with CAA

Popular artist has sold $4 billion in paintings

Thomas Kinkade has inked with Creative Artists Agency.

Artist has signed with the tenpercentery in an effort to seek out TV, film and Internet projects.

CAA will rep both the artist and his company, which has earned more than $4 billion over the past 15 years from selling paintings and licensed merchandise.

Move comes after his painting “The Christmas Cottage” was adapted as a direct-to-homevid pic that was released by Lionsgate in November. It’s the first of a series of planned homevids based on Kinkade’s early years as an artist.

Kinkade continues to be managed by Dan Spilo of Crosby/Spilo Management.
