Design details: Hello,

I am looking for an illustrator to draw for me a number of winter woodland animals in their habitats - with a twist. The habitats will look like human houses as drawn by an architect and interior designer. They must be light and humorous. The main age group is 3-10yrs old. I will give you a list of animals we are looking into designing for, like Fox, Badger, Squirrel, Owl etc. For example, Mr Fox will have a nice relaxed interior of a Gentleman's Manor with a roaring log fire. surrounded by the luxury of a seducer / silver fox bachelor. The Otter is near the water and a bit of a beach bum or fisherman etc. Though all of the houses have to be inviting and luxurious somewhat. Maybe Doormouse, has lots of kids etc.

This is based on a book which is no longer in circulation. I have attached the link below. Think of the Brambley Hedge and Peter Rabbit.

Initially the book will be printed and distributed to a few children in class. So have no high budget. However, if it's successful there, we will look into publishing it. You will always get credit for the illustrations, but you must be happy that they will be mine and you will not use them yourself on your own for something else. I wish to publish the book at some stage, and if we do, you will be entitled to royalties etc. But be prepared that it would take a long time if it even does get published.

I am looking for quality rather than quantity, so quote me on the whole of the illustrations. You will do and how many animals you will do for your price, no hourly rate. You will be given time to do this properly. The book could prove very sentimental and great if done correctly.

I will judge the decision on your portfolio, so do include any work you feel will be relevant.

Animals to choose from are :
Fox, Badger, Owl, Squirrel, Beaver, Otter, Deer, Dormouse, Hedgehog, Mole, Weasel, Wild Boar or any animals you propose.
