Artists only need to submit ONE image (the one requested) to be considered. To be considered for this particular contest, the artist will need to submit their depiction of a particular scene in the attached story. It is on PAGE 4 and is highlighted.
The finished image needs to be high resolution, high quality, full color image approx 8x20 inches (this will be a double page spread) in landscape orientation.
Any additional images will also be considered and could make the difference between two artists. I have many books awaiting illustration so, depending on how we work together; there will be other opportunities for the winner of this contest to illustrate more books.
I am looking for vibrant, whimsical artistry. Something that is appealing to children and depicts the scenes of the story well. I am not looking for interpretive artwork. Rather, I am looking for a fun way to realistically display the scene. This is a child's story - geared to children 4-7. It is fictional and fun. I am looking for an artist that can help convey humor and light-heartedness while telling a touching story.
The winner of this contest will have the opportunity to negotiate pricing for the entire book – which is approximately 20 images total. If you would like to know, in advance, what my budget is for that project, please message me. I would like to complete this project quickly (within a couple months) but I can be flexible for the right artist.
