Potential Project #68
I am looking for an illustrator that specializes not only in children's book, also pets; specifically dogs. My manuscript is complete and now I need illustrations for the book. The targeted age range will be from 4yrs to 9yrs old. The book is a spin off from my young adult + book, Real Dogs Don't Whisper (www.realdogsdontwhisper.com); to get a sense of the four characters in the book, please visit my site. Mr MaGoo is the main character for the children's book. The book will be approx 10 pages in length.
Illustration style samples:
The goal is turn Mr MaGoo and the gang into adorable dog illustrations (www.realdogsdontwhisper.com), aimed for 3/4 yrs old to 8/9 yrs old.
We would like to see is just one image of Mr MaGoo. Mr MaGoo will be Mister Spunky in the children's book. In order to capture Mr MaGoo's personality, I greatly encourage to visit www.realdogsdontwhisper.com (FB www.facebook.com/realdogsdontwhisper or Google + RealDogsDontWhisper)
Real Dogs Don't Whisper is about second chances and miracles. Read about four rescue dogs that were ready to be given up on because they have special needs; they teach their human about life, love, and hope. My other co-author is Mr. MaGoo, he is a larger than life dog and has a lot to say. He is a spunky, hilarious, nine-year old Lhasa Apso; who will be the main character for Mr Spunky.
Mister Spunky will be the happiest dog in the world (and the coolest!). He loves driving around in his red convertible, with the top down, and his sunglasses on. Mister Spunky is carefree and happy-go-lucky. He enjoys life and loves to have fun.
The other characters in the children's book will be his siblings from RDDW, however, the personality of Mister Spunky is what I will believe to be the capturing component of the book. The book's under lining message will be around special needs and helping those in this demographic vs bullying and making fun.
-Budget: 130usd (10 illustrations)
