We are looking for somebody to work with on MULTIPLE projects for a long, long time. The biggest criteria is a sense of humor - and that it can be translated into book illustrations for the very young and juvenile (and cynical) and young at heart reader!
The first project is supplementary illustrations - the style would have to be complimentary to what has already been created. (The illustrator has been diagnosed with a serious health issue and is not able to complete, but it would be imperative to incorporate the work that was done in his honor.) This would be two individual contracts -
The second exciting project is to find an illustrator who will enjoy illustrating and creating the characters for a juvenile series.
Perhaps the best art references would be Maxfield Parrish, James Christiansen and most importantly – Brian Froud. (Yes, the UK artist behind the creatures in such works as the film Dark Crystal – monsters, heroines, knights and creatures that are humorous, empathetic and unforgettable).
We cannot post links for easy reference - so please do your own search and see if any of these references are something that you would relish as an artist to explore.
We know the artistic “timeline” and temperament – and can work with both.
The budget for the second project is significantly larger than the “trial” run of supplementary illustrations needed for the first.
We look forward to hearing from anyone interested - and hope to find someone we can work with for many years.
(Language difficulties are not a problem – after all, laughter is universal!)
