I want an artist to create a series of illustrations for a rhyme that I have written. The rhyme is designed to teach young children (ages 4-10) about how to deal with bad thoughts that is presented in a fun and quirky way. I am in the process of selecting an illustrator to work with for this rhyme and a number of other rhymes that I have developed.
I will pay up to $30 for you to develop a character of a bad thought, which is called a “nasty”. The nasty is described as something as tricky mouse, nasty and rather brute. The mouse is to look cute but a bit sinister and quirky.
There are approximately 20 pages in the book, including a title page and credit page. With the illustration of the ‘nasty’ please provide an approximate estimation of hours to illustrate the 20 pages (I will provide the storyboards). There will be a total of 3 different characters (the nasty, a child and an adult) across these 20 pages. There is a potential that some of the illustrations will be animated – please let me know if you are able to animate as well.
I will select the illustrator who best describes the nasty and who can deliver the illustrations for the book. I am looking for a creative person who we can work with to deliver a high quality, quirky, fun and educational e-book. My aim is to develop a longer term collaborative relationship with an illustrator who we can use for the other rhymes as well.
Please reply to this email if you are interested in developing an illustration of the ‘nasty’.
