Wanted: cartoonist who can draw horses

Postby Margi » Tue Oct 23, 2012 11:02 pm

I figured this might be a good place to ask. I'm writing a factual book about horses and I need illustrations for it. Simple line drawings to illustrate a point per page in a humourous way. It needs exaggerated expressions on horses'/ponies' faces etc. Along the lines of Thelwell style ideally, but of course all artists do things differently and my ideas are not set in stone.

Is anyone here, or do you know, an artist who can do such work and would like to be involved in the project? This book has been a long time in gestalt and not got any further because the pictures are such an integral part of it and all I can do is stick men and smileys. (And those are lucky to come out smiling!)

It's a shame Zephyr doesn't post here any more. She was a wonderful artist and very talented cartoonist. :?

Jenn does have a website though. Canis Art

I would second Tony's suggestion - her cartoons are great :)

In fact, my avatar is a Zephyr cartoon!

They're great pictures but not really what I'm looking for. Of course, she may be able to do what I have in mind. Nothing seems to be up to date on her site? Has she dropped off the radar or what? I'd certainly like to get in touch if possible.

The important thing is to have someone who really knows horses.

:( I'm afraid I haven't heard anything from here in quite some time.

Hope she's doing well. I tried to look at her website and my browser froze.
