To Illustrate a childrens book about a minibus character. I will require about 12 illustrations. The books are not sold commercially. They are sponsored and given free to children in Hong Kong and China.
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 six 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.
I only pay $10 per illustration as I am funding the whole exercise from my own pocket. I hope to have 12 books completed by the end of June. This book is 'Ming and he Blue Haired Man of Shanghai" The story is based around a Minibus that visits the Shanghai and is shown around by a blue haired man and his daughter. Illustrator will be able to find a lot of pictures on the internet. I will also be able to send pictures as well.
Illustrator needs to be able to put real peoples faces, charactures, comic style people int scenes around Shanghai. I will post some work from previous books as the Minibus character should be the same as in previous books. Illustrator needs to be able to represent architecture of Shanghai.
