30 simple line illustrations for a children's' book

Posted 4 weeks ago

We need 30 line illustrations to bring a children's science book to life.

There are 10 chapters and we'd like to add around 3 illustrations within each chapter, so 30 total.

You will go through the book and find opportunities to add illustrations such as a simple black and white drawing of various things depending on the book's content, depending on the book this might be weather phenomenon, animals, or parts of the human body. Most of the things illustrated will be intended to help kids understand the content of the book and make it more engaging, especially for younger readers. In some cases you might be asked to reproduce diagrams that are in photographic form etc.

Throughout the style of the drawings will be consistent and it will make the book more engaging for the young readers.

You will receive an illustrators' credit. The book already exists, it is 5 star rated and selling well, but without illustrations and some reviewers have commented that illustrations would make for a better book. It's a good point.

Please provide some examples of past work (if easily available) with your application. Please do not create any new work for your proposal. Also, we're thinking black and white line art or grayscale for this as a simple way to illustrate the book without adding color printing, but if you'd like to suggest a different approach/medium, we are open to that.

Obviously all drawings should be 100% your own work, no plagiarism, usage of libraries/clip-art/AI etc. Completion within 2 weeks of project acceptance would be great. There may be multiple projects here in a similar style.
