Hi there, This project is for me personally. I have written a series of short stories for my daughters, and they have taken to them ore than i thought, so i figured it would be fun to have them illustrated with a view of making them into actual books to give their friends etc. Therefore, i am seeking a talent to join me in bringing the stories to life. The main character is a dog, and whilst i do not want straight out cartoon, it does still need to appeal to a child - so CREATIVITY is a must please. You must be able to produce your work in a way that it can go straight to printers, without any extra work. Inspirations of work by Isabelle Arsenault....but not mandatory. Thank you and look forward to seeing your application!
