We're looking for an illustrator to illustrate our children's book series written for children ages 4-8. This adventure series stars an 8 year old African-American boy visiting his father’s home country of Kenya.
Through our hero’s eyes we learn about everyday life in Kenya, from the fascinating sights on the bustling road to Mombasa, to the backyard shenanigans involved in catching a chicken, to a lion cub’s innocent playfulness deep in the savannah.
The stories are short, fun, funny, action-packed and filled with rich details of the locations and culture of our hero’s adventures.
For our first story, we would need approximately 16 illustrations. We'd like to see samples of your work that show stylistically how your children's book illustrations would look. If you have a website that shows your style, we’d love to see it.
Also, as an example, you could draw an 8 year old African-American boy hunched down, looking curiously at a pet monkey of a street vendor that appears to be a statue. If we think your style is a good match for us, we can talk further about details.
Thanks you in advance for your responses.
