Original Illustration + opportunity for future contract work

We are looking for an experienced and imaginative illustrator to create illustrations of Japanese tales in the style of early Japanese art. We have provided examples of how early artists interpreted a single tale or allegory - please see the attached images. We need an artist to do an original work of art of the same tale in an original design with a contemporary approach. We will provide examples of how other contemporary artists have interpreted this design style with a modern sensibility.

There will be a series of projects each of a different story. And, the potential is that this work could be plentiful and ongoing.

The person who we select needs to be creative and imaginative with an ability to do dynamic illustration in an attractive style. The illustrations are somewhat reminiscent of anime and contemporary children’s book illustration. So, interest or experience in those fields, as well as a basic knowledge of those fields, is helpful.
