I am a hobby beekeeper that would like to have an original piece of art drawn to portray a scene of a beekeeper in a beeyard (apiary) to use as a stamp on craft gift bags. This is NOT a logo request. The final work must be 100% original art (no using filters or other fancy tools that manipulate photos and make vector lines, no reuse of others work or reselling of copyright works— I have to say this because recently on Fiverr someone tried to pass off copyright work as their own), must be only black lines (no shading or color) and 600 DPI for the stamp company to be able to produce it properly in an adobe illustrator .ai file format. The art must fit on a 5” wide x 7” tall bag, no smaller, no larger, and must be done in vector lines. The illustration must transfer all rights and ownership to me on acceptance and never be duplicated or resold again, but can be used by the artist as an example of their work without restriction.
My basic idea is to have an old fashioned illustration look to the stamp; I mocked up a very rough rendering to explain what type of look I’m going for by clipping other works from old book illustrations I found online and then adding in my logo. I never intended for it to be exactly like this example, but there are specific elements about it that I find appealing; e.g., I love the flourish frame idea around a central scene of beekeeping, and I love the crown (99% of bees are female, and only exist because the Queen creates life). So what I’m interested in is something that accomplishes a scene, taking the shapes of my hives rather than the old tree beehive illustration and using the shape of my daughter holding a frame of honey in her bee suit and putting in a landscape of sorts. I am open to other ideas, but I’ve been staring at that mock up for a couple weeks and I think it has grown on me.
