Book illustrators work to a brief from a publisher or author to create images that accompany a story or text. Depicting characters and worlds based on descriptions, a book illustrator must think in terms of visual storytelling and forge a creative connection with the author.


Interested applicants must be advised that this is a long-term volunteer project, and as such, you must be ready to contribute to the game on a long-term basis (however, as this is an unpaid position, full-time dedication is not expected)

Therefore, the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with other team members is essential

It is also important to not afraid to ask and discuss, and find out the solution should any problems arise

We are an English-speaking team, so proficiency in the English language is a must

Working knowledge of design and drawing programs such as photoshop, illustrator, procreate, or your program of choice

Excellent understanding of art fundamentals: lighting, composition, architecture, human anatomy, etc
