Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are agents, consultants and writers in the field of management software (for the printing industry), property and the arts. The writing is currently aimed at children, teenagers and their families.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
A number of stories, written in rhyme for children (4 to 10). These involve animals (crocodiles, centipedes, hippos, rhinos, warthogs, weasels, owls, elephants, turtles and many others) who solve problems such as holes in shoes, accidents, etc. The animals interract with each other (and speak on occasions) exactly as humans would. Each verse (4 lines) would have an illustration of the scene in that verse - covering an A5 double-page spread. The current stories have 19 verses (2) and others with 10 and 12 verses. They would then be published as books for parents to read to their 4 to 8 year old children, showing them the pictures as they act out the story. And older children would want to read them for themselves.
It is essential that the depictions of the animals are attractive to children. I have attached one picture which is retro, but too strong and not appealing (in fact a bit frightening). These stories are very original, but need images that children can identify with. I have included some verses that might give a flavour of the stories and animal characters involved. Please remember that at this stage I need to assess the versatility, quality and understanding of the illustrator. This is an ongoing project and the payments could include a share of the success of the series.
