I have many(20+) children's books, middle-grade novels, and YA novels that I need an illustrator for. Please have a portfolio specializing in fantasy and children's illustrations.
You'll need to have excellent knowledge on how to size the book covers for print and kindle and make sure that each illustration is at least 300dpi. I like vivid colors and designs that capture the attention.
This will be an ongoing project, hopefully for years to come, as I'm a full-time writer now. If you do not plan on illustrating for long-term, please do not apply. If you do not have at least adobe illustrator, please do not apply. If you have never created a book cover or interior book illustrations before, please do not apply. Please know how to create custom book font designs as I do not want to use premade fonts.
I am looking for only one illustrator and one with whom I can communicate freely with, in English, and who has an outstanding sense of creativity.
My budget is negotiable per book, as they are different lengths, but, I am looking to spend no more than $200-$250 per children's book(full cover and 15-20 interior illustrations in full color) approximately 15-30 pages each.
For MG novels, full cover and black/white interior, chapter illustrations( 15-18): $200 per novel.
For YA/Adult novels: full cover and one black/white interior illustration: $150.00 per novel.
I'll be finished writing the last children's book in the series in mid-October and looking to begin with illustrations by the beginning of November.
My timeframe will be somewhat set for each book(1-2 books per month) so, I ask that you please be a prompt person.
I am looking forward to finding a great illustrator and having a partner who can bring my words to life with their illustrations.
The Illustrators name will be on each book cover, so your work will be recognized.
I've attached a few sample illustrations of book covers/book art for an idea of the style of illustrations I'm looking for, two examples for each age group.
Serious inquiries only, I don't want to waste your time and I don't want you to waste mine. Please know what you're doing. If I do not like the illustration, I will definitely let you know. If I do, you will get paid, simple as that. I do believe in tips, on the occasion the project surpasses my goals and everything is on time. Thank you!
All the Best,
Author of Fiction
