Children's Book Illustrator for African-Inspired Tale

Job Description:

I am seeking a talented and experienced freelance illustrator to bring to life an enchanting children's book, "The Tale of Mwumba the Weaver and the Birth of the World." The story is set in a magical African landscape and follows the celestial being Mwumba, who weaves the earth, its diverse inhabitants, and the majestic Tree of Life.


Strong illustration skills and a versatile style that combines traditional African art with a touch of whimsy and magic, suitable for children.

Ability to create vibrant, expressive characters and landscapes inspired by African culture, flora, and fauna.

Experience illustrating children's books, with a portfolio showcasing relevant work.

Excellent communication skills and ability to meet deadlines.


Collaborate closely with the author to develop and refine illustrations that capture the essence of the story.

Create a series of 14-16 full-page or double-page spreads, along with a captivating front cover image and a small back cover illustration.

Deliver high-quality, print-ready illustrations in the agreed-upon format and timeframe.

If you are a passionate illustrator with a love for children's literature and a keen interest in African-inspired art, I would love to hear from you. Please submit your portfolio, resume, and a brief description of your artistic approach to this project.

Style: The illustration style should be a blend of traditional African art and modern storytelling, with a touch of whimsy and magic to appeal to children. Use bold lines, intricate patterns, and expressive characters to bring the story to life.
