This is a fixed-term trial job.

I'm working on a children picture book (4-8 years old) about an animal. This book is the first in a series.

You need to be able to drawn animals and vegetation. The illustrations will be based on a 1200 -1500 word rhyme story. I need you to draw 30 pages of colour illustrations, plus 1 cover page with all revisions included.

English as a 1st language is required, as you will be asked to interpreted and translate the story into images. You will need to be able to read the text and understand the story.

I am open to suggestions for scenes, but if necessary; suggestions for illustrations will be provided.

Bids are welcome for all drawing types, be it by hand (oil, water colour etc.) or with Photoshop :-). All pages will be 8-1/2 inches wide X 11 inches tall (A4 Portrait).  Payment will be in 3 milestones, 10 illustrations per milestone + cover photo. The illustrations should appeal to young children (see attachment for examples).  

I will own all rights to the illustrations. However, I am looking for a long-term collaboration and if you are the hired illustrator, your name will be included in all publications and the art will be credited to you.  

At interview stage you will be asked for one sample line picture of the character(s) prior to hiring for the entire book.

Turnaround time is only 2 weeks, so you must be willing and able to work to this deadline.

Your bid will be automatically declined:

• If you do not provide Illustration Samples of your work or a link to your portfolio of work.  
• If you fail to reply to this job posting with “May the force be with you”.

Looking forward to working with you. :)

Best regards,


Skills: english, drawing
