To Illustrate a childrens book about a Minibus who travels to Vietnams Ho Chi Minh City during the TET festival. The bus driver , his friends and Ming the Minibus look at the festival and some of the sites in Ho Chi Minh City. I will require 12 illustrations. The books are not sold commercially. They will be sponsored and given free to children in Hong Kong and China. The books will have a travel, friendship, hospitality and tourism theme. The story is about a minibus who travels to different places making new friends and seeing new [url removed, login to view] book will be a simple story that children can read and understand. The illustrator will need to be able to draw the Minibus in various locations. Many of the scenes can be found on the internet. However it is important that the book charcters are the same or very similar to previous books. I also include real people or their characture in the book. So an Illustrator good at this aspect is needed
I am a teacher in a Chinese primary school and am not allowed to do any paid activities while under contact. I will approach publishers after my contract expires and any commercial selling of the book will include royalties for the illustrator. I have completed 35 books so far and have been happy with the work of the illustrators. I am not concerned about reputations or experience as I am quite happy to let people who want the experience do the books.
Please bid for the 12 illustrations. Not per illustration as this can cause misunderstandings. As I am funding the whole exercise from my own pocket I am looking to keep the cost between 30 and 100 dollars. Students welcome to bid as well as established illustrators. I will provide samples from previous books on any characters in the story.
It's best if you are able to provide samples of your style especially the minibus charcter and the driver.
