Llewellyn Worldwide is well known for its New Age books and products. We
are looking for skilled freelance artists and photographers for a variety of
projects including book covers, book interiors, and calendars. It is an asset,
but not necessary, to have a good knowledge of the subject matter: magic,
Wicca, astrology, tarot, yoga, mythology, women's spirituality, health,
gardening, self transformation, etc.
We utilize a wide variety of styles and mediums, ranging from abstract to
realistic imagery, in full color or black and white. If the work is
figurative in nature, the anatomy must be accurate. Soft pencil, stipple,
and pastels are no encouraged due to poor reproduction on press.
Any digital artwork must be created in a program accessible to a Macintosh
computer as our projects are completed solely using the Macintosh OSX
platform. We are not able to support any Corel Draw or Corel Paint files
and other such PC based art programs.
Occasionally we ask the artist to work from a manuscript for concept and
information, but we frequently have a fairly tight comp or rough to
reference for final art. Pencil roughs or jpg files must be approved before
any final art is executed. Artwork can be created either traditionally or
digitally. Digital artists are supplied a secondary set of guidelines if
they are contracted for a project to assure printing standards are met.
