Illustrate a Science Fiction book jacket

I am looking for an artist to create a cover illustration for an original sci-fi/speculative fiction novel. It was written by a family member, and I am editing the manuscript and preparing it for publication. Clearly I'm not an impartial reviewer, but I will say that I was skeptical when I picked the manuscript up, but quickly could not put it down!

The book would be a paperback of about 300 pages, sized probably at 6x9” (15cm wide by 23cm high), so a wraparound illustration including the front, spine and back should probably be around 13x9", not including a bleed.

We are looking for an illustration over which we could superimpose the title, author, and promotional copy on the back. We’re both pretty easy to work with, and would be able to offer ideas and feedback, but would give you lots of freedom to create whatever comes to your mind’s eye. Without prejudicing your imagination, here are some examples of illustrations that I like:

A synopsis is available for all serious applicants. Some of the literary and visual themes that could be reflected in the artwork include:

- large neighbouring planet

- dual or split personalities

- telepathic communication

- space travel

- mining

- slavery


The image is a wraparound, composing the entire book jacket. Some of the back cover will be devoted to some text, and title and author on the front of course, so the detailed areas of the image should be narrow, allowing for the text elements to be legible. The right part of the image, showing on the front cover, should be the primary subject of the illustration, with a supporting illustration on the left for the back. (Leave room for the spine.)

The artist should be skilled in various media and tools, able to pull off some detailed textures and surreal effects... the author would like there to be a sailing ship (1830s era) and space elements... again, not to prejudice, but I have an image of a large planet on the horizon and its ethereal double pulling apart from it.

Copyright of the illustration will transfer to the author, while the artist retains the right to use the image in his or her own portfolio.

Whatever medium the artist uses, the final product should be as a minimum: a JPG file at very high quality, 300dpi, given the 13x9" (33x23cm) size--approximately 4000x2700 pixels.
