Illustrator Wanted!

    I'm looking for an illustrator to illustrate the children's book I've written. I don't have a preference on the medium.  If you are an artistic person, let me know and I'd be happy to consider you! Thanx!

      I'd love the opportunity to illustrate your story. Are there anymore details about exactly what the story is? I've always wanted to illustrate a childrens book and would just enjoy the chance.

      Here's a link to lots of work I've done, check it out and let me know.

      Hope to hear back from you.

      Good idea to look for people in hubpages forum northweststarr !


      I have posted a hiring post (looking for Mechanical Turk HIT manager) earlier in the forum and the moderator deleted that post

      Later I noticed that it says:

      "Advertising and promotional posts in the forums will be deleted and may result in the closing of your HubPages account."

      But northweststarr you are able to get around that, what should I do to post a post like yours but not pushing the botton?

    If you want a good illustrator, hubber Art 4 Life
    Once you see her work, you will stop looking. She sat and drew a picture of my mule in 5 minutes that was a perfect image of him. She is excellent, easy to work with and talented as all get out.   Contact her, you will not be sorry.

    Without wanting to do anybody out of work, I do feel that I have a very valid point to make here.

    Most (not all, but most) publishers of childrens books prefer a manuscript without illustrations, as they do those in-house.

    If you pay for an illustrator now, you could lose yourself a fair bit of money. If you agree to give your illustrator a proportion of your revenues, you could be paying them for illustrations which are not used.

    A much more sensible idea would be to suggest that your preferred illustrator does a couple of samples, and then forward these to publishers as a suggestion.

    As a general rule though, illustration is accounted for in the publishers costs. I have explained this in slightly greater depth in my hubpage 'How To Publish A Childrens Book' which was written with the help of a friend in the industry,

    Good luck.

    I have worked illustrating CD covers, and they always pay for each illustration, whether they use it or not.Sometimes the artist pays for it, if he wants you . If not the publisher does, if he choses to work with you.
