We want vector-based scalable designs that will work from the smallest smart phone to the largest tablet.

I need illustrations for the following animals:
Gorilla, Water Buffalo, Monkey, Lion, Rhinoceros, Leopard, Vulture, Snake, Hyena, Hippopotamus, Wildebeest, Elephant

Each should feature the head only, and be of a cartoon-like ‘fun’ style. There should be a consistent style and they should all be of the same approximate size.

I expect you to give designs for some of these to give me an idea of the theme of the design, but then to send all of them once the design has been accepted.

Colours should be bright and fun but not too garish.

Please note that I only need the head of each animal. They are going to be shrunk to a very small size, so they need to be quite simply drawn. There will be four of each head in a 62x62 pixel box.

There might possibly be a border, but this is for the designer to decide.

It will be predominantly for a younger audience aged 5 – 8 years.

There is a strong likelihood that we would like to animate the characters in the future.

The cartoons in the attached document give some idea of the kind of style I'm looking for (though I'm hoping the designer can improve upon this).

Please note: We do want vector-based scalable designs which will work from the smallest smart phone to the largest tablet.
