I am looking for an illustrator to produce illustrations for a chapter book written for the 7-10 age group. I require one cover design/art and nine colour illustrations of specific scenes from the manuscript. The scenes have already been identified and the illustrator will be provided with the manuscript which will include guiding descriptions of the illustrations required. However, creative input from the illustrator will be welcomed. Publication will initially be in e-book format with the print version coming later. So, the cover is to be designed with both formats in mind.
Shortlisted illustrators should be prepared to produce portraits of the protagonist (a five-year-old prince with a prodigious talent for cooking) as well as two other characters for consideration before being hired.
The illustrations should strive to attract the children's attention. I have a personal preference for vibrant colours and drawings that are not too cartoonish but at the end of the day, it should be suited to the story and age-group.
The hired illustrator should be prepared to first draw the characters, and once finalised, submit an initial or proposed sketch/design for each scene to allow for comments/modifications, if necessary, before progressing to inking/colouring. The illustrations should be done in a suitable size so as not to diminish quality when resized. Upon completion, high resolution JPEGs of the illustrations shall be delivered together with their high quality original source files. When creating the cover design, the illustrator should also bear in mind Kindle Direct Publishing's requirements for creating the best quality cover image.
This shall be considered commissioned work, where copyright ownership of the work will transfer to the employer. However, the illustrator shall be credited in the book, in whatever version it is published. If transferring copyright is an issue, then the illustrator should be prepared to grant unlimited rights in consideration of the fee paid.
