Experience Level: Intermediate
To Illustrators Around the World:

My name is Allan, and I'm Co-Founder of a Personalized Children’s Book
Publishing Company. I am also President of a 20 year experienced graphic
design firm based in Minneapolis, MN USA.
What we’re looking for:
We’re searching for illustrators from all around the world to be considered
for inclusion in a children’s book. We've created a concept in which we're
exploring the possibility of hiring a diverse variety of illustrators,
living and actively working around the world to help demonstrate the
diversity and uniqueness of the planet in which we all live.

If you're a highly talented illustrator, traditional and detailed in style,
I'd like to hear from you. (With no offense intended, cartoon-style
illustrations are not the style for this book so illustrators specializing
in this style need not apply.) Please post a notice back and mention that
you saw this posting and either attach samples of your best work or a link
to your work for consideration. Due to the size and scope of the overall
project, I will only reply or send additional details on the project if your
illustration or painting style appears to be a potential fit for our book.
We have a specific list of countries that we're interested in that's listed
below. If you are currently residing and working within one of the countries
listed below, and you have lived in that country for at least 1 year, then
you are a candidate for consideration on the project to represent your
country. Posting Reply Content (required for consideration):
1. Please state the country you’re hoping to represent when responding to
this posting.

2. You must have residency or originate from the country you claim to be
representing. This is critical to the concept and we will require
documentation in writing to substantiate this if you’re selected. If you’re
a resident of, or living in, a war-torn country and are in temporary exile
please confirm and we will view this as meeting the criteria.

3. Only those artists and illustrators providing samples of their work
will be considered, along with verification of the country in which you
desire to represent.

We’ve only listing the remaining countries (and a few cities) that we’re
currently looking to fill. If your country (or other) is not on the list
below, you’re welcome to submit samples of your work, but only those meeting
eligibility and responding to the countries below will be contacted
immediately, due to the anticipated response volume to this posting. It’s
quite likely that if your country is not on the list below, an illustrator
has already been selected for that country.

Project background:
Who we are: Ten years ago my wife (Maia) and I founded a children's book
publishing company which now sells Personalized Children's Books and Gifts
online and through retail outlets. My design firm designs the books and Maia
is the author who writes the books and also manages the business on a daily
basis. We have several successful books (and products) that we’ve completed
to date.

Next Step: Please respond back following the requirements stated above via
PPH (peopleperhour) guidelines promptly so that I know that you have an
interest in assisting us on this project. A much more complete outline of
the details of the project will be sent if your style appears to be a fit.

I'll hope to hear from you soon and would enjoy the opportunity to discuss
the details to a greater degree with those that meet the requirements stated
in our posting.
