Illustrator for Line of Coloring Books

Posted 2 months ago

We are starting a line of adult coloring books and need someone to create the illustrations for each book.

These will be black and white line art illustrations like you would find in major adult coloring books.

We are looking to create a certain style that is whimsical and fun but at the same time provides a good coloring experience for adults.

Here are a few examples of the types of style we are looking for:

Fun and Whimsical but slightly detailed:

Some collage-style like this:

And some bold and easy like this:

But all illustrations need to maintain this same whimsical and fun styling.

All illustrations will be black and white line art that is perfect for adults coloring.


These need to be hand-drawn illustrations. NO AI can be used.

They must pass and meet the highest quality standards and pass our review. If we feel they do not match the standards we are looking for, then you will need to redo the illustrations.

Each illustration will need to be unique and cannot be images downloaded from Creative Fabrica or other sites like this. Each illustration must be unique and never used anywhere else.


These will be fixed price projects. Each book will be approximately 50 illustrations so you need to quote your price to create all 50 illustrations for a book. IT IS NOT HOURLY so do not place hourly proposals.


We are looking to do multiple coloring books and need someone who can work with a time line of 2 weeks per book. So you would need to be able to complete 50 illustrations within 2 weeks.

If you cannot do this please do not apply.


You would need to agree that you will keep the books completely confidential and will not use any of the book's contents for your own use or disclose the book's content to others.


We have two sizes for our coloring books:

8.5 inches x 11 inches and 8.5 inches x 8.5 inches.

Once you finalize each illustration, you will deliver the final versions in either 8.5 x 11 inch size (2550 pixels wide x 3300 pixels high) in png format at 300 DPI


8.5 x 8.5 inch size (2550 pixels wide x 2550 pixels high) in png format at 300 DPI.

We will tell you the size needed before each project is started.


Please provide samples of your work.
