I'm looking for an illustrator or two who can help me create dynamic and beautiful  Sketchnotes for events and book summaries.  You'll be redrawing/recreating notes that I've already taken - all the copy, (original) images, and rough mockup is provided.

I previously worked with a great illustrator, but I've lost touch with him.

Please look at the Sketchnotes that have been created - yours need to be as good as, or better, than these.  They don't have to be identical.

I will provide you with the following:

- a rough layout of where everything should be on the page.  
- links to images that I'd like to have drawn
- copy/text in a text file

These need to be done on a tablet - not in ink - as changes are often needed.  Using pen/pencil and paper is too time-consuming to change.  Once we get the hang of working together, these will get easier.

Attached is a sample of completed Sketchnotes - this is what I'm looking to recreate.  I wanted to attach a sample of the layout I'd give you - but I don't see it here.   Also, below is the copy that goes with a layout - along with links to images (as I would like them drawn).  I'll also provide the audio of the event, like this:  The audio can be found at:  https://soundcloud.com/nextthingnow/tom-kelley-creative-confidence

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer.  I'm looking for an estimate of hours you think it would take to deliver a finished product - I'll pay hourly, but I want it to be based off of the total time you'd expect it to take.   Expect a little back and forth for the first one - note that I"m looking for one or two artists to do many of these for the year.

If you are hired, I would hire you to do just on quarter of the Sketchnote, to make sure we agree on the look.

Also, please provide relevant, excellent pieces in your portfolio.  I want to see sketching/drawing/illustration work.
