AN AUTHOR AND A PUBLISHER IN SEARCH OF ILLUSTRATORS
My new children’s picture book, with the working title of Sunday School with Professor Jackson, is in need of an good illustrator and if you’re an artist, Pelican Publishing, which has tentatively accepted my manuscript, invites you to apply. The book is the true story of the very famous Stonewall Jackson and the black Sunday school he helped build and that he taught at before the Civil War called him from Lexington, Virginia. You should apply:
1. If you have an interest in the Antebellum South and America’s Civil War.
2. If you have strong research skills. There is a great need for the book to be historically accurate in the visual images.
3. If you have a desire to help tell one of the great, extremely positive, but forgotten stories of history.
4. If you would like your artwork to be represented by an extremely aggressive author (that would be me, Rickey E. Pittman) who knows how to effectively promote books and gain sales (thus, royalties for you) and publicity.
5. If you have a desire to make a difference in children’s (and adults) lives by enriching them culturally and helping them to love history and the books that teach us about history
Pelican’s page (here) for illustrators says this of the application process:
Pelican Publishing Company, the largest book publisher in the South, is always interested in talented, hard-working illustrators. All materials that are submitted to us are kept on file and reviewed as new projects arise. We would be very happy to have you send some of your best work for our perusal. Below are our basic guidelines for submissions.
Please Note: Pelican does not accept illustrations submitted via e-mail or the Internet!
Appointments: Pelican prefers submission by mail only. If an appointment is necessary, contact will be made with the artist.
Via Mail: Please send all materials securely packed and insured if necessary. Any materials to be returned must be accompanied by return postage and return packing materials.
Artwork Markings: Be sure all materials have your complete name, address and phone number in case the materials are separated or some are to be returned.
Artwork Format: Try to keep the size of all materials under 8 1/2 x 11 unless they may be folded. Materials are stored in a standard letter file cabinet, so oversize material is returned. Published works are preferable, but color and B/W copies are acceptable. Please do not send faxed materials unless requested.
Suggested Subject Matter: Since the majority of our illustrated books are for (1) children, (2) young adults and (3) technical, work submitted should be in these categories. Our children’s books are generally full color with both whimsical and realistic, human and animal characters. Our young adult books require black/white line work in a mostly realistic style. Technical work would include maps, diagrams, charts etc.
A current resume showing work in the design area (especially books) is helpful.

*Feel free to share this page or this page’s link with any artist you feel may be interested. I have other children’s books under consideration for publication with Pelican, (and about other topics other than the Civil War) so if you’re a good artist, please apply to Pelican Publishing. You can tell by the beautiful covers of my two children’s books already published that I’ve already worked with two wonderful artists (see http://rickeypittman.com/books.html). Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
My names is Andre, I’m a young italian illustrator but I live in Dublin.
In regards to the illustrator needed post I saw, I am very interested. I have been asked to illustrate for a number of children’s books and I worked in animation cartoon for a company leader in Europe.
I could produce quality work and easily meet deadlines. I am very proficient in producing digital art and have an enormous number of styles, I can draw anything and in any style. Also, I could easily produce a new style or mood in the drawings based on what you specifically want.
please take a look at my sample illustrations at my gallery portfolio by
I am from Charleston SC and share a common interest in the Civil War Etc. The research sounds like fun. I am an architect in training and do illustrations on the side. I usually don’t do Children’s books but this sounds like something I might be interested in.
