Style and Concept

What lillustration styles do you like?

They should not read as "cartoons". But do not need to be "photo-realistic" by any means. I searched around online and perhaps this is an example of a style that would be appropriate: http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-illustr...

Well hmmm.... non earthy colors I guess.

Do you have additional info or links you'd like to share?

I have six African characters. For each character I need a "head shot". If this project goes well I also may want a standing version for each character and a single image of all six of the characters standing together.

Important note: The images must look like they come from all parts of Sub-Saharan Africa. To an audience of African experts it should not be clear that the illustrations are all of a certain African ethnic or linguistic group, region, etc. Mix it up and/or stay neutral as much as possible.

The six characters are:

(1) A national policymaker. Toure, the Minister of Planning for an African country.
(2) A (white) international development specialist. Sarah, the education manager at CARE, an NGO based in Atlanta, GA.
(3) A provincial professional manager. Daouda, the head of a provicnce hospital.
(4) A community radio journalist. Fatima, the host of a district community radio call-in show.
(5) A village elder. Khadim, the head teacher at the local primary school.
(6) A "common" village resident. Ama, a local market woman.

My suggestion is that you bid with an illustration for just a single character. And then for the winning bidder you will complete the remaining five.
