Kids books illustrator needed (2 books, +-16 pages each)


Need an illustrator to create colorful, gentle, pastel, cartoonish illustrations for two short kids books. Each book is around 16-17 pages.

I already divided the text into pages and have initial illustration ideas ready, but ideas are welcome!

You will:
- create graphical illustrations on two written stories (-+35 pages overall)
- create book covers for each book
-  make sure to leave some space for the text
-  make sure to consider the ideas and additions that i provide, but creative ideas are very welcome!
-  make sure to avoid drawing eyes of the living creatures (details below)

Details on book:
In Islam it is prohibited to draw living creatures. One can draw a living creatures by hiding his eyes and head.
Eg, a human standing under palm tree, where large tree leaf hides his head, but the body is still seen. I also have the ideas on this part, but any creative additions are welcome!

Other details:
- the format is square
- most of the illustrations can be a double page (so it makes job easier)
- stories are in kazakh (english version and original text will be provided)

- Initial Sketch: ready in 3-4 weeks
- Intermediate results before final work: 7-8weeks
- Final sketches: 10-11 weeks
- Final artwork: 12-13 weeks

I will need to verbally describe my ideas to you, so you need to have good communication skills in either English, Russian or Kazakh and be OK with some ambiguity at the beginning of the project.

Looking forward to meet you!

I have added some illustrations that I liked and would love to see similar illustrations.
