I told you about my plans to find an illustrator using freelancer. Well now the contest is up and running. The contest will be running for 6 days and I hope to get a good amount of entries.
I included a word document with additional information about what I’m looking for.
“I am looking to have you draw an illustration of the main character of my book in color. I would like her standing in front of a moving truck. The character, Ayana, is an 8-year old African- American girl. My books are about her everyday life with Asperger’s syndrome. I would like the illustration to show her in front of a moving truck. The story is geared toward 6-8 year olds. I would like you to quote in the comments, your price and timeline to do ten additional black and white pictures plus a cover page (in color).”
I’ve noticed that not all have looked at that document or taken more of all the information provided in the document. However this is good to see now because I could be working with this person for two weeks over the internet and to find someone who will take in all my input in order to give me the illustrations I want.
To help in the decision, I will be tweeting on my author account about the contest and ask if anyone is interested in voting. I will also give that option to you here. Please take a moment to vote on the posted entries here.
