To Illustrate a childrens book about a grasshopper character. I will require about 12 illustrations. The books are not sold commercially. They will be sponsored and given free to children in Hong Kong and China. The books willl have an environmental theme. The story is about a grasshopper in Hong Kong who eats grass that contains chemicals that cause hm to mutate and grow to the size of an elephant. It is anticipated that this will become a four or five book series.
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 15 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.
I would like you to come up with a comic grasshopper character that appeals to children. It's best if you are able to provide samples of the character and your style.
