- Winner: alenkaart
I need someone to illustrate my children's book, Lemon Armadillo. There will be 20 illustrations in total. I have already basically designed all of the artwork so just need someone to draw it/illustrate it in higher quality. For this contest please submit one or more entries based on the images I have uploaded. I will choose one illustrator who will then need to complete all 20 illustrations. I will send you my drafts for all of them. I will pay 35,000 yen once all have been completed. Feel free to ask questions.
**Note: if you illustrate the cover for this contest, please add "Lemon Armadillo by Brett Nelson" at the bottom
Book details: Lemon is an armadillo from the South West of the United States (the Sonoran Desert, in my mind, though armadillos are widespread). He is bright yellow, like a lemon, young, perhaps the same as a 7-8 years old human child, and he always travels with his red backpack. Again, there will be 20 illustrations in total. The target age for this book is 4-8, so the illustrations have to be simple, colorful, and cute.
I need illustrations only so you can ignore the text in my copies except for the cover or if it is a comment from Lemon. The final page size will be 6" by 9" (inches) or roughly 153 x 229 mm, with an inner margin of .5 inches or around 13 mm. No other margins are necessary.
I will provide clear explanations of each drawing if it is not easily understood from the text. If you have any ideas for improvement please let me know!
