A novel similar in target audience and length to George Orwell's Animal Farm which was written as a Children's book but aimed at all age readers, including Young Adult and Adult.
The main character is a boy. The story follows his life through history from the ages of five to twenty-five, as he meets famous people.
Illustrations will be line drawings with some colour. The illustrations must be unique but for this novel, the author is drawn to the style of Quinten Blake.
Short-listed applications will be given the novel’s synopsis. The final short-list of three applicants will be given an edited copy of the novel to interpret.
This is one of two novels by the author. The second is similar in length and style, but aimed at a Young Adult readership. The illustrations will also be line drawings with less colour. For this novel, the author is drawn to the work of Gerald Scarfe, Terry Gilliam, and the BBC's History of Ideas.
Both novels will be published in English, on-line and in print. The illustrator may be any nationality or speak any language, provided the illustrator is reasonably competent in written English.
The themes of both novels are controversial in their challenge to contemporary western social attitudes. The short-listed illustrators need to have some sympathy for the novels' themes. The first novel above has the promise to become a classic in social literature.
Each novel will contain at least twenty illustrations. Illustrators will be paid per illustration. Illustrators may choose to be paid in part or wholly in author royalties. Illustrators who choose to be paid per illustration will be acknowledged on page 3 of the novel and may include their website, blog, and/or e-mail address. Illustrators who chose to be paid in part or wholly by author royalties will also be named on the rear or front cover, respectively. Illustrators are asked to give a price per illustration for a total of 20 illustrations, and may choose to change their method or remuneration at any time up to publication.
Illustrators are asked to apply with a brief C.V, five examples of current work, their current location, and a portrait photograph.
