Illustrator - Oil or Acrylic - Hand Painting Abstracts for Poetry Book

Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.

Job Description

This job is for the illustration of a poetry book. The topic is the emotion of colors. Each poem is a characteristic of colors or is about the specific colors themselves.
I need an artist with a very good sense of poetry and abstract art to represent each poem. You will work closely with the author to determine whether or not your work is appropriate for each poem.

Do not apply if you are only able to provide digital work. We are only interested in hand-done artwork.

You will also create a front and back cover for this book.

There are 18 poems which will need to be formatted onto two facing pages (sometimes with the text on only one side with some illustration and the other side all illustration and sometimes with the poem split between the two pages with illustrations on both pages as well).

You will also lightly illustrate the other internal pages, such as the title page, dedication page, table of contents, etc.

All revisions will be included.

These are not going to be heavy-duty illustrations. You will need to do whatever it takes to appropriately and effectively illustrate the book. Vivid colors and interpretation of the poems is mandatory.

You will have to sign a transfer of rights agreement before beginning work on this project.
