Contest Brief

We are excited to announce a contest to find the perfect illustrator to work with us on our second self-published children’s book featuring bike riding dogs who teach kids about the importance of cycling and sustainable lifestyles.

To start that search, we are running a contest for one illustration that highlights your unique style and abilities.

Please start by taking a look at the original artwork from our first book, B Is For Bicycles:

We would like your submitted illustration for the contest to feature the two main dog characters from B Is For Bicycles; Wrigley the black dog, and Watson the dalmatian dog. Please show the two dogs straddling their bicycles and giving each other a high five while looking directly out to the viewer of the image. The dogs need to be wearing bike helmets and we would like them to be standing outside their bike shop called Buddy Pegs.

Your interpretation, or reinvention, of the Buddy Pegs logo, additional animal characters found in the various pages of B Is For Bicycles, or an anthropomorphized bicycle(s) are all bonuses that could be included - but not required.

Attached is a character summary of the two main dogs.

Your character illustrations need to be relevant and similar to the characters in B Is For Bicycles. However, your illustration style does not need to match identically to our first book. Even though the first book was done in watercolor, all illustration mediums will be considered for this contest.

We want the dogs to be full of emotion, expression, and personality, with a look and feel that steers more toward realism and less towards traditional cartoon style.

The winner of this $75 contest will be asked to submit a bid for the full illustration of our second book which will tells the story of how the two main dog characters opened their bicycle store Buddy Pegs.

I've also attached project details to this post.

Thanks for considering a submission to this contest and please message me with any questions!
