I'm a writer (think magazines, lifestyle/travel websites etc) who's creating a portfolio website. While I have the rights to use my words, I don't always have the rights to use images with my work. For some articles I've used my own photos or royalty-free photos, but many are still blank.
While playing Popmundo(.com) I was inspired by the use of graphics on the site. Here are a few examples: [url removed, login to view]
I'm not looking for clones of this style, I'd much prefer something unique, but I like the idea of cartoons to illustrate some of my articles. One idea I quite like is a cartoon version of me to appear in a lot of the pictures as a running theme.
At the moment I have more than 20 articles that need images and in the future this number is only likely to grow. Although my site won't get a huge amount of traffic, I will give credit to you on each and I'll also create an author page where you can have a bio and a link to your site. Of course, I'll also pay.
Those articles mainly fall into two areas:
- sport/travel/lifestyle articles (where image ideas will be quite obvious)
- business/marketing articles (where things will be less obvious and you might have to get really creative)
The images need to fit in a 940 px (width) by 500 px (height) area and they can be a single image, a cartoon strip depicting the article or whatever else you can think of.
A few examples of the more boring topics that I want illustrations for:
1) HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM NEGATIVE SEO
2) HOW MUCH PERSONAL INFO SHOULD YOU SHARE ONLINE?
3) HOW TO GET OUT OF A CAREER RUT
4) WHY CONTENT MARKETING ISN'T A COMPETITOR TO SEO
5) FACEBOOK TO ALLOW TROLLING
A few examples of travel etc:
1) THE POWER OF SILENT MEDITATION
2) HELPFUL PHRASES WHEN YOU TRAVEL
3) WORLD'S WEIRDEST TOILET HABITS
4) PSYCHICS ARE ALL FRAUDS
5) IS WEARABLE TECH WORTH WEARING?
I can, of course, send you links to the full articles so you can get a better idea of what you might draw for each.
In your pitch I want to see that you've really read my post. Tell me why you're the best pick, show me examples of your work, tell me how you'd take control of the project and pick one article from each list above and give me a quick summary of how you'd illustrate it.
When sending in a pitch, let me know if your price is per image or for a job lot of 20.
