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.
Please read our Art Submission Guidelines document for details on how to submit your portfolio for consideration.
