Illustrator Needed for children's chapter book - Gingerly Ruffles some feathers
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
I am in need of a replacement illustrator to continue working on the third in a series of children's chapter books. Because consistency is important, I need someone who can match the previous illustrator's work precisely. This is especially true when it comes to the characters and their expressions. I am attaching examples of the illustrations needed.
I will require 10 illustrations (one per chapter). I will provide direction for each picture but will give the illustrator freedom to choose the details. Each illustration is of a simplistic, black-line basis. (See example).
Also, a front and back cover must be provided, in color. (See example).
The previous illustrator was very good but she resigned because of personal issues. I am very sad not to be working with her any longer. I hope whomever I hire to replace her will be just as good or better.
The final book will be 6 inches wide X 9 inches tall. Each illustration must have at least 1 inch around each side to allow for margins and gutter. The front and back cover will be one illustration measuring 13 inches wide X 9.5 inches tall. The title must appear on the spine along with my name.
If you are hired for this work, you will have to sign a "Transfer of Rights" agreement whereby you turn over all rights to all illustrations and anything associated with this work to me. You may not use the images or likeness without my written permission.
I am offering $100 for 10 black-line illustrations and a front and back cover. The lettering on the cover will be up to you but must be revised if I request it. I will provide the back cover information which you will insert onto the illustrated back cover. You will be given a couple of lines for a very short biography on the back cover. I must approve of your bio before it is included.
If you and I work well together, you may be hired to continue illustrating this series. So far, I have books 3 and 4 waiting to be illustrated, with more on the way.
This work must be done within 1 month.
