I am an equine veterinarian of 23 years and a lifelong horseman. I created a smartphone app and database of equine health information- essentially an encyclopedia of horse health. It is called Horse Side Vet Guide. I also created a free website for horse people. . You will get the idea here. www.horsesidevetguide.com . The app is critically acclaimed and has been downloaded in over 50 countries.
For now, I need someone to help me make some attractive, compelling and useful illustrations. You can see the kind of illustrations I have made so far here. http://horsesidevetguide.com/vitals-and-anatomy
For the right person, I might have a longer standing position to help me illustrate the app and website- mostly anatomical/ medical illustrations. I will also need help on infographics and a variety of other graphical projects.
You will need to be an excellent artist and illustrator. You will need to be willing to work with me, and off my rough sketches (I am an amateur artist myself and I have pretty strong tastes with respect to horse art and anatomic illustration).
Really important to me is integrity, responsiveness and communication ability. I want to work with someone who will do what they say they will do and who provides value.
I will favor applicants with a portfolio of relevant drawings, specifically with skill at drawing horses and anatomic/ medical illustrations. But I am open to novel concepts. if you can illustrate well in 3-D and you impress me with what you can do, I may want to explore doing some illustrations in 3-D. etc.
I am envisioning creating a list of running projects. I will describe to you what I want, show you a sketch, and show you examples of similar artwork. You will tell me about how many hours you think it will take, and we will agree on a total cost for the project. Once we agree, you will provide a rough sketch. I will comment on it and we will pass it back and forth until we agree on a direction. Then you will finish it.
We will start with one illustration of cryptorchidism (retained testicle) in the horse. The attachment is an example of a sketch I made. I will want to do something similar (but better and more illustrative. I will pay a set amount for that project that we determine together.
Depending on how that project goes, I may hire you to do more.
