I have a blog with a significant following where I look to simplify complex topics on life to help people take action.
Writing is hard to digest for people when anything is of a lengthy nature. So I tested writing short stories which provided the same messages and it got an incredible response from those who wouldn't read the longer articles.
So I have a bunch of short stories (parables) that I have already written but wanted to work with a talent illustrator like yourself to give them a visual aspect. To bring them to life.
If it works well, this will be an on-going thing each week. But I am not looking at any advanced type illustrations and don't have a big budget to spend on this - something simple like Joan Cornella type illustrations is what I'm looking for. But with a more meaningful message.
Let me give you an example of one I want to trial, which is the fixed fee project, and if it goes well - this will be an on-going weekly partnership. Below is the trial story:
An attractive woman one day was walking along a path when she hears a whistle from a man on the other side of a door. Peeking in through a small hole, she sees a man with an ear to ear smile waving back at her. Intrigued by the attention. She lowers her shirt down slightly to reveal more of her body and this time hears back two loud whistles.
Peeking in again, she sees two men now waving back at her, both with big smiles. Confused, but excited.
She does this again, and now she is greeted with three whistles.
On and on they go. More she reveals, the more whistles she gets and the better the woman starts to feel about herself. She is getting lots of whistles, smiles and waves.
In the excitement, the woman feel a sudden urger and undresses herself completely and stands confidently waiting for a response. The whistles stop. She peeks in and there is now no one at the end other. Absolute dead silence.
Standing there completely unclothed, a wave of incredible embarrassment passes over her. Completely alone, she covers herself and runs away with tears in her eyes.
Moral - Don't lose yourself in the pursuit of attention.
