Illustration experience is needed!

Today is a turning point, I am looking for an illustrator for Who's That in the Cat Pajamas?  I am checking out Fiverr and seeing what I can get. I have an image in mind for both Dolcey and Emily. I have ideas for the other pages too.  Should I go in with an expectation or leave it to the illustrator's discretion?  This is my fairy muse.

Has anyone used an illustrator before? I could sure use some helpful tips before I rush in and make myself look inexperienced or worse yet, foolish.
Here is my muse for the child.

As this is a chapter book I am wanting sketches more than artistic painting. I asked my daughter to check the multitude of chapter books in her daughter's bookcases and that has helped me some.

Any advice from other children's book writers?  I am trying to pull it all together.
Thanks for visiting, follow me, I am looking for friends and blog mates to share ideas.


  1. I'm not sure what sort of style you're looking for with this, but I happen to be an illustrator. Again, not sure what sort of art style you'd want (so, uncertain as to if mine would fit), but if you find that it'd work, I'm pretty sure we can work something out. Some of my stuff can be seen at my WordPress blog ( Either way, I wish you the best of luck with finding someone!

    1. I have someone that is working it up now. I will keep your name because I loved your artwork. I loved the detail in the clothing and the characters themselves. Thank you for contacting me. I plan on several more books, so I will be in touoch with you. Thank you Kayla, you haev an amazing talent.
