My first art ever. I'm not an artist but I have a lot of stories in my head.




I am posting this project here because I do not have a huge budget and payment is based off of future sales.

This is a royalties based, long-term gig. I am an illustrator but do not have the technical skill, execution or speed to bring certain elements of my work to life. I currently have a book series out Vol 1 and I need to have activity/coloring books that branch off of 8 different girls. What I need is line art characterizing them in various fun, carefree poses/scenes in line art only. The images need to be Line art ONLY, transparent background,  300dpi and will be made into coloring/activity books. For each book sold you will earn a 30% royalty based off of net earnings. Possibly more depending on the success of the books.

I am in a niche market that is centered around clients of African descent so please consider this before applying. 

********My preference is for an ANIME ARTIST with a style that closely matches my own or is able to mimic my style.********

For example (click the link below to see my style):
Nigerian Daughter

According to her bio I might ask for a scene depicting her in different outfits,  taking pictures, because she loves photography or shopping for jewelry at a market, at the beach or blogging on her computer, riding a bicycle, smelling flowers etc. they do NOT need to be full body and can be shown from different perspectives. The line art should be smooth, clean and easy for a child to color, so not too busy.

You will need to sign a confidentiality agreement, copyright release, royalty agreement and I will own all copyrights on work as it relates to my characters.

If you commit to working with me, the terms will be for one girl and at atleast 10 pages of line art for her. Not every page will center around a full scene. Remember, this is an activity book so your art will be incorporated around whatever activity is presented in the book.

I will pay $50.00 paypal for each girl of the 8 girls. You will need to sign a new agreement for the start of each new girl. You will be paid half for the first 5 scenes and half for completion of the last five and as stated before, you will earn royalties on the books as well as credit for the artwork on the front or back cover. 

Please be advised that I may require the EDITABLE source file for some of your line art for possible coloring later and use in images for marketing on other items (there would be royalties for that as well) or if we decide to use certain images on the book's cover. I will pay additional for you to do the book cover if you are interested in doing it yourself.

I hope this is clear enough. I am looking forward to working with the artist with the demonstrable skill who is interested in helping me create my vision. I know it isn't huge money but it is a dream of mine and I know it will be successful. 

I am really interested in cute, pretty and fun, so if this similar to your style I'd love to work with you!
My offer is pretty simple and straight-forward. I am an illustrator myself and I make coloring pages for kids. I need help with my online shop. I just need someone good at creating fast simple line art for coloring pages I will use in my store. I will own all copyrights and you will need to have the ability to send me the (SAI or PSD) source file in case any editing is needed. 

This is a simple tedious, job and zero creativity will be required on your part. You will literally be tracing over photos that will be turned into coloring pages. 

I will pay $3-$5 per page (based on the level of detail) and I will pay you via paypal. There are a LOT of pages and this is an ongoing, long term gig.

It is probably best for a young person who is looking to make some extra money in their free time.

If you have issues with communication, do not apply.
If you do not like blacks/Africans/African Americans, do not apply (because my work is centered around this group)
If you cannot produce coloring book quality line art, do not apply

As I said before, I do this myself and it is NOT difficult work. I am just starting out as a business owner, so as I make more revenue, I will pay more, but I need someone who willing to work with my budget for now.

Stop laughing, and don't judge me.

  • Reading: Suspense and Sensibility

  • Eating: Cheez-its
  • Drinking: water
I am so bad at it, lol. But I have several little pieces I've been working on but these days I have to do everything so gradually, because it seems like I never have any time anymore. Thanks to you that have been visiting my page. I am always looking at your artwork too. I have been so excited and inspired by some of you in particular. And quite a few of you make my little artwork look like stick But I will have to wait until my skill level picks up to try to execute what I like best in my own style...whatever that is haha.I think my work tends to be more on the cheesy side. I think its the little girl in me.
