Seeking an illustrator that has knowledge and experience with the Amazon publication process. At this time, I plan to self-publish the book using Amazon. The illustrator must be comfortable utilizing this platform of publication for their artwork. As part of the contracted rate, the expectation is that the illustrator has the technical abilities and software to upload their artwork to Amazon. Past publications and experience are not essential as long as the illustrator demonstrates creativity, skill, and familiarity with the Amazon publication process. I would request a portfolio review to ensure that the illustrator’s style aligns with my vision. Again, the target demographic is ages 4-9. Lastly, I would like to hire an illustrator in the Buffalo or surrounding WNY area to allow for collaboration at the beginning of the project.
