I'm looking for an illustrator for my book-in-progress HOW TO TALK TO
ALIENS. The book is about how social insects, octopuses, and robots on
other planets could evolve to have language and a technological
civilization. This is my third book, my first two having been published
by Houghton Mifflin and Free Press (Simon and Schuster.)
need drawings that are inspired by insects, etc., but go beyond them to
depict alien sapient races. I need drawings of the interiors of the
insect colonies and of their cities; of octopuses that have evolved to
become land-dwelling creatures; and "robot bushes" that are based on
Hans Moravec's ideas.
I'm having a tough time finding someone
who has both the chops to draw real forms and the imagination to draw
ones that don't exist. I'm envisioning pen and ink drawings of the kind
that you do.
Payment would be from me, not the publisher, and my time horizon
is about 4 months for 10 or 12 drawings of various levels of complexity.
