Hello. Looking for someone to help me with a book

Hello

I am new to this forum and joied because I am stuck!

Briefly I am looking for help in finishing a book I have written for my granddaughter. Some years ago when she was only 3 years old, she sadly witnessed her mummy being crushed by a horse, which reared up and backwards, crushing my daughter, who suffered horrendous injuries.

My granddaughter lives with me. The incident left her with issues. She suffers with nightmares, has invented invisible friends, and constantly goes on imaginary adventures, where she meets monsters and fairies. She is suffering badly at school, due to the fact she seems unable to concentrate on any one thing for more than a few moments.

I often make up stories in order to help realise the difference between fiction and reality. I have been working on an adventure story book where she is the main character, but am now stuck with the illustration. Could anyone on this forum, please help me or point me in the direction, where I may find someone who could create the illustrations for this book at a reasonable cost. It will not be for sale, this is intended as a gift for my granddaughter and to give her a lovely memory of me after I am no more.

Thank you in advance for reading this. I look forward to any replies.

I would post a few parts from the book, and see what reaction you get. Nothing to lose.

That's a terrible thing for a child to witness. Have you considered getting her into a therapist?

I think the book sounds like a great idea. I wouldn't be able to illustrate it, but I hope you find someone here who can. If WC doesn't work, you might try Deviantart.

I would suggest you first create a list of illustrations you need. Then write up a description as best you can of what the illustration would be like. What it says. If you have reference photos mention them.

Secondly, look at the Wet Canvas watercolor forum. Find out who is organizing painting challenges. Send them a Personal Message to see if they would use some of your needs as challenges. If so, you would have a number of possible images created for those needs. Then you Personal Message those artists whose work for the challenge most closely conforms to your need and get their permisson to use the art.

Try that.

Thank you so much for your responses.

I am sorry I have not replied before now. I really have not been ignoring these. I have not been very well.

Thank you for your suggestions, I will most certainly follow these avenues.
