Help Amber illustrate her next book: Where’d Turkey Go?
While the story itself is fully written, I am searching for the second, very important part to go with that – the illustrations!
For my first book “Where’d Cow Go?” I commissioned Rebecca Shuttleworth, a talented local artist and rancher with an eye for animal illustration. After sending her my stick-figure page layouts Rebecca brought the story to life. I have been thinking a lot about who will bring this next story to life and my mind keeps coming back to all of you! Each day I see the talent from this group on social media and through sent artwork. I feel it only makes sense to include those who have supported me in my journey for so many years. I am turning to my fans for help. I am holding an official search for the illustrator of “Where’d Turkey Go” over the next couple of weeks and here is how to enter:
The book is about Sweetpea the Turkey, who was born on my farm and found a wonderful forever home with my friend Katie.
You can see more pictures of Sweetpea for reference via her Instagram hashtag: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/sweetpeatheturkey/
Here is a sneak peek excerpt from the book for inspiration for you:
Please email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include the following:
- 5”x10” spread featuring your rendition of Sweetpea (a spread means 2 continuous pages of a book laid flat open)
- Your name and a short bio including your illustrative style
- File formats accepted are: .jpg, .pdf, .tiff
Submissions will be open from May 24th – June 14th. The Top 3 selections will then be interviewed on Zoom by Amber Marshall herself and featured on social media for artist promotion and of course fan admiration! Amber will be making her final choice on June 21st and announcing the winner on social media.
