I've written a children's book as the first of a series. It is a fun and lively book about an energetic girl who goes on an adventure to find a mysterious-something that she feels is missing. She doesn't know what she is looking for when she sets out. In her searching, though, she meets a friend and discovers that that's what was missing all along. The story has funny scenes and is also captivating because it's not until the end that the reader discovers what is missing! It also teaches a good lesson about friendship, and the good thing it is to have someone to share adventures with.
I'm looking for an artist that can capture the fun-loving and adventurous spirit of the book, and the beauty and brightness that a good friend can make in one's life. There are a number of scenes for which facial expressions will be very important in capturing the specific feelings of the characters - both serious and goofy:). The book is descriptive.
I will need about 10 pictures, plus the cover.
I understand that artists get inspired by different things. I can assign specific pictures; however, I'm open to you choosing scenes that you have a particular interest in drawing! It's a fun book, and I want you to have fun illustrating it! The inspiration to write it was for my friend who is a first grade teacher, and her class gets a kick out of funny scenes:).
So, if the story line interests you, let me know! I'd love to see some of your art and maybe work together to bring these words to life. Compensation will be discussed.
Hope to hear from you soon!
