Lee & Low Books, an award-winning publisher of quality multicultural books for children, is looking for skilled artists of color who can bring picture book stories to life with originality and authenticity. Their books feature children/people of color and fall within a range of genres including contemporary and historical fiction, biography, poetry, nonfiction, and more. They are particularly interested in hearing from illustrators whose cultural, ethnic, or racial backgrounds and experiences support their knowledge of diverse cultures. Illustrators should send a resume and/or cover letter, as well as color copies, tear sheets, or other illustration samples. They are particularly interested in samples that feature children/people of color and that show an ability to illustrate the same character consistently over many scenes. If you have a Web site with additional samples of your work, please include the Web address. Do not send original artwork, portfolios, slides, or electronic samples on CD or by email. Please visit their web site (www.leeandlow.com) to learn more about the kinds of books they publish before submitting your samples.
