Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are looking to have a children's book illustrated and want to see one image from you to decide who is the right fit to illustrate the whole children's book series - starting with book #1 - based on our sons and our farm. We want actual illustration (obviously a computer/digital pencil can be used but we want it to look hand drawn or painted) we want the feel to be vibrant and whimsical.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
**this if for a page spread in our book of our son in his cowboy boots and hat (about age 5) with red hair greeting our rams and goat first thing in the morning. Then hopefully the winner would like to help us get all the illustrations for our book as well as the cover. We want illustrations that look hand drawn nothing digital looking.
We want it to feel whimsical and bright but have a nice artistic feel - like watercolor look or rich, vibrant colors in drawings please avoid looking too modern, cartoonlike and nothing that looks digitized at all. We have the story already which contains 8 spreads, so 16 pages - it will be a mix of full pages, a 2 page spread and a few smaller images as well as the cover.
We are excited to see what you come up with. It doesn't need to look totally life like but we want it to be semi-realistic while also being playful and appeal to the audience of a family/kids book. I have attached a picture of our son in his cowboy hat - it doesn’t need to look just like him, more so the feel and the red hair/ outfit ... and a picture of a few of the animals we want in the scene (just the ram and goat on the left and in the middle) and the one from the last picture (a white haired ram) - normally the rest of the animals you'll have more liberty but these we'd like to resemble these colors/breeds.
