How many pages of illustration do you need?


What do you need illustrated?

There are three sets of illustrations.
1) Mixing a martini
2) Shucking an oyster
3) Cutting a pineapple

Does your illustration need to be a particular size?

Each frame should be no smaller than 2" x 2"
That said, if the artist needs to work on a larger scale, that is completely acceptable.

What is your industry?


Describe the target audience for your illustration

This information is not relevant.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your illustration?

The illustrations simply need to convey information in the photos upon which they are based.

What lillustration styles do you like?

There are three How-to's to be illustrated. Each should be a different style.

If you have your own illustration style, I welcome you using that.
You may choose your own colors for the illustrations, however, be aware that simpler is better. You may also modify the compositions (be cautious about this) to take advantage of the cartoon medium.

Ultimately the most important thing is that you can 1) produce the illustrations quickly, 2) keep them
Readable – ie, not over stylized, colored or rendered such that the effects distract from what is being conveyed.

The styles of the following artists (cartoonists) would be preferred:
1) Adrian Tomine
2) Philippe Dupuy
3) Gregory Gallant (Seth)
4) Ron Rege Jr.
5) Any well-known manga artist

What colors do you want to see in your illustration?

Color palette's should be limited / somewhat muted and consistent with colored illustrations from the above artists. Bright colors of artists like Peter Bagge are NOT preferred.

What colors do you NOT want to see in your illustration?

See above

What adjectives should best describe your illustration?

See artists referenced above.

Where will you use the illustration (print, website, etc.)?

These illustrations are for a private internal presentation only. They will not be shown to the general public ever.

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

Hi all,

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer in this project has requested a refund. And, because we offer buyers a money back guarantee, sometimes we have to make good on that promise.

To reward the loyal creatives who worked hard on this project and all the others on the site, we've taken the proceeds from this project and used them to fund our monthly cS Awards program. The cS Awards are issued every month based on varying criteria but are a simple way that we give back to the community and reward our creatives.

Thanks so much for participating and see you around the site,

The cS crew
