I have a new client that is publishing a science fiction/historical novel for a young adult audience.
She is seeking 7 illustrations to be included in the novel and has provided a very detailed brief for each one, which include reference photos.
The style is to be detailed line drawings with "just hints of colour". Attached are examples provided by the author that show the style she is looking for, but also show the time period the book is set in.
As a self-publisher, the author's budget is limited, but there is the possibility of ongoing work as I always have clients looking for good and reliable illustrators.
