We are currently working on a children's book that describes global warming and how to stop it. Why the environment and the animals who live in it are worth saving.
We are looking for a traditional Marvel-comic-book-style heroine. Our eco-warrior (Maia) is smart, sassy and has a sophisticated sense of humor. In fact, the book is based on humor, so no brooding 'Batman' types. While our heroine doesn't have the kind of dark side that Wolverine struggles with, her sarcasm game is strong.
Think intellectual Amazon woman.
As this book is for children, the heroine should be strong and funny rather than sexy.
The book will need a cover and illustrations on every page.
The target audience is North-American tweens.
The style will be comic-book with bright primary colors - no pastels. You can play with rich, strong colors and green is a must.
Initially, we are looking for a single illustration of our eco-warrior. Once we have a winner, you will be commissioned to work on the other illustrations which should range between 12-20 pieces.
Long hair, no mask, no guns. Weapons are ok, but they should be plant-based. Of course, her suit is made from recycled water bottles!
