We are a custom publisher based in New York, USA, and have an assignment to illustrate a children's book. The book would have roughly 10 panels, plus a cover and involve a handful of characters. The author prefers a watercolor style.
The story is about a dog and includes canine and human characters. We would provide direction for the illustrations, including photographs for a few characters.
Here are the characters
Boy and Father
Gloria (beautiful woman)
Dogs at the sanctuary
I am looking for a mix of experience and value
