Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Mobile Museum Graphics

WHO:

Highly skilled illustrators.

WHAT:

KBDA is working with the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County to design the exterior graphics of the “mobile museum” trucks that go out to the elementary/middle schools here in LA. We’re looking for illustrators who can produce fairly photo-realistic environments: One will be an underwater scene for the “Seamobile” The illustration concept for the “Earthmobile” will be a bit more complex but would ideally involve depiction of both coastal/mountain environs here in Southern CA. Another option we’re pursuing is to find an illustrator who works in a more vector-based style.

WHEN:

Now. Time is of the essence on this project — once we have concept approval, we anticipate the illustration process will need to be completed in about a 2-week period, starting 11/7 and delivering around 11/21.

If you’re available and interested or have any questions about this project, please contact KBDA (Kim Baer Design Associates) at 310-255-0902 or via e-mail at elizabeth@kbda.com cc: kim@kbda.com

Folio Society Book Illustration Competition

WHO:

The annual international competition is open to illustrators over the age of 18, both student and professional, with the winner receiving a prestigious Folio Society commission.

WHAT:

Each year entrants are asked to submit three illustrations and a binding design for a particular book chosen by The Folio Society. The winner receives a highly sought-after commission, worth £5,000, to complete a total of nine illustrations and a binding design for the book, which is then published by The Folio Society. Five runners each receive £500 cash. Three prizes of the six are awarded to student entries.

This year, the book to be illustrated is the Folio Collection of Ghost Stories. Ghost stories by well-known raconteurs of the paranormal such as E. F. Benson and James himself sit alongside lesser-known gems. It encompasses all the best-loved hallmarks of the ghost story tradition: dilapidated houses, servants and townspeople with dark secrets to guard, creaking floorboards and moving doors, footprints, noises and hair-raising sightings of ghostly beings by turns benevolent, pitiful and evil. From edge-of-the-seat psychological tension to the vestiges of grisly murder, this collection is destined to haunt its readers.

WHEN:

Deadline:  January 19, 2015
