Call for Artists HVCA

Creative Challenge for the United Way

A Unique project for respected nonprofit: Seeking an illustrator who can create 5-6 illustrations for a brief story about two children. We are looking for a very whimsical line drawing style. The illustrations will be a part of United Way of Western Connecticut's 2010 annual report, so the timeline is tight (design needs to be completed by mid-Feb.) Stipend of $200 available. Collaborative work with United Way staff and graphic designer, who will carry design theme throughout the report. Credit will be given to artist in report, and mailed to major donors in March.

Samples should depict your interpretation of the following:

Once upon a time, there was a little girl and boy. Their parents were very wealthy and had always given them everything they wanted. In fact, they had never left the castle where they lived because they were told the world was a dangerous place, and no one could be trusted. One day while playing in the courtyard, a sound caught their attention outside the gates. Curious, they cautiously stepped out of their protected yard and into the big world.

Open to all artists, first come, first served.

HVCA members are given first priority

Deadline for submission Friday, January 21st 11:59 PM or when an artist is selected for the project, whichever comes first
