Sample illustrations for childrens story


In the first instance I am looking for proof of concept for the appropriate artwork to go with story text. Following the acceptance of samples from the right illustrator the next step would be to contract for the actual artwork that would accompany the stories.

This is very limited budget initially; the view is to publish and so a final agreement would be either the purchase of a series of illustrations of a royalties agreement. Initially I require illustrative samples which would fit the text and complete the product.


I have written text for a children's story and require an illustrator to bring the characters to life. This aspect is essential to the story and the characters require personality. In the first instance I will need to evaluate the style of the artist and proposed characters.

The three protagonists of the tales are:

Sleepy Tiger (ostensibly a mother figure)

Sleepy Monkey (ostensibly the chile)

Sleepy bear (ostensibly a father figure)

- note that the animals don't need to appear sleepy always, the first story is designed for children's story time before bed such that the are comfortable going to sleep after a big day.

The stories consist of an adventure which ends with a "pleasant tiredness"

Although the text is simple, I would like the illustrations to have lots going on - not necessarily lots of detail, but lots of activity to promote conversation between child and parent.

An example is that the three friends take separate modes of transport - helicopter, motorcycle, kayak to a friends farm where they meet and play with the animals - example illustrations might include the character arriving by simple helicopter with farm activity in the background.

Dr. suess illustrations are the level iof detail required. I would like the characters to be distinctive such that they would be recognized form the books.
