I am looking for an original artist to redo the illustration of one of my previously published children's books. The book title is: We're Different it is True. This is a story about how we are all different but that we are still friends.
I need an artist who can provide a visually beautiful and exciting representation of my story. I do not want a digital artist. I want these pages to be hand drawn and then painted. PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU CANNOT PROVIDE THIS QUALITY WORK.
This contract is for the illustration of up to 22 pages (44 facing pages). The two facing pages should be illustrated as one large picture and the text will be placed, CREATIVELY, by the illustrator. Only royalty free font may be used (available on fontsquirrel.com). Illustrator may use different fonts to compliment the illustrations, but the words, punctuation, and format of the text must remain as the author has written.
The illustrator will also provide three internal pages with partial illustration (internal title page, dedication page, and other books page).
The illustrator will also provide a front and back cover, in full-color, with all of the provided information included. The covers are to be submitted as one large document measuring 18 inches wide X 11.5 inches tall.
The artist must be aware of the margins and gutters where no text or important features may be included due to the bleed and gutters. SEE THE ATTACHED ILLUSTRATOR INSTRUCTIONS. READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS. Ask if you have any questions or are confused by any of the information provided.
The turnaround for this project is 6 weeks. Updates must be provided by the illustrator to the author every two days as a minimum. Sketches will be provided prior to proceeding with final drawings and painting. All revisions must be provided back to the author within 48 hours.
Please see the attached detailed requirements for this 8-1/2 inch wide X 11 inch tall book. (9 inches wide x 11-1/2 inches tall with the bleed). Each internal page will be submitted as an individual page but the covers will be submitted as one large page measuring 18 inches wide X 11-1/2 inches tall.
