LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
This project is a storyboard and sample of a richly illustrated children's book to entertain and help to explain the Austrian Business Cycle Theory developed by Ludwig von Mises, teacher of the Nobel Prize winning economist Friedrich Hayek. This theory explains every economic boom and depression, including the current one, since the advent of government fiat money. A sponsor of Mises.org, Krolman Corporation is underwriting this, their first, publishing project. The story was written by businessman and amateur economist Arthur Martin McCannell Krolman for his two children in February 2009 and has been praised by syndicated columnist and economist Walter E. Williams and Mises.org editor, Jeffrey A. Tucker among others. Potential print run for a high quality product is 50,000 - 100,000 copies per year. While full copyright will be the property of Krolman Corporation, this project is an opportunity for an aspiring children's book artist to become known to editors of major book publishers and the general reading public. Total art illustration budget, including cover, is $10,000.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
Storyboard for complete story layout plus one full color final artwork page sample of a scene in the story (your choice) so we can get an idea of what the completed book could look like. Submit as high resolution jpg or pdf. The winning submission will be likely chosen to complete the artwork for the entire project.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Readers around the world from ages 10 - 100 who want to learn about why we are in the current economic depression... and to enjoy a new well-illustrated story about the three little pigs!
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
I like the unbounded creativity of artists. No limits on your ideas...or the number of thousands of readers who will potentially enjoy the glow of your credited genius.
