jobs description

I'm looking for a creative illustrator with experience OR the ability to draw MULTICULTURAL and diverse illustrations for a career children's book. Able to draw in different professions e.g. pilot, farmer, etc, and kids with disabilities like in wheelchairs. This is starting immediately upon hire within a few weeks.

Typesetting/formatting and Book Cover design are optional skills but desired...

A work sample featuring African/Black/Hispanic characters are highly encouraged. Examples are attached to give you an idea of what I'm looking for. ​Some of the samples are pictures of the main characters that I would like to be turned into cartoon illustrations. The other samples are styles of drawings I own the rights to or saw online and do not own rights to.

This job is for 15 two-page spreads + A front and back cover = 16 spread illustrations.

The first milestone will be a paid test of a family of children (6-girl, 9-boy, 10-boy) and parents (mom & dad) to be sure you are the best person for the job. ​[Images attached show childhood and adult version of the family, Not exactly the age ranges provided.... The story is told in the point of view of a 6yr old girl.

Please note that this is a work for hire and I will own all rights to the illustrations. ​

Final images must be provided as follows:​

- In a single high-resolution PDF file at size 8" x 10" (300dpi or above) ​

- Individually in .jpg or .psd file format ​
