We are looking for our cover to include "Lil Kanye" a youthful bear as the focal point. We love the look of Kanye West's "Dropout Bear" (attached below) but in order to refrain from infringing on their copyright you will have to submit your own rendition of it. We have added a few photos for our artists to pull inspiration from below.
Eyes (Size and multicolor)
Cuteness (Not obnoxious)
Pops off the cover (Specifically in the 5th panel)
Lack of emotion
Simple background (Does not need to be solid color, example #3)
Creative spinoff of the dropout bear
Body Proportions (Example big paws, eyes and, head)
We are looking for 2 versions of your cover
Version 1- Your version of Lil Kanye Standing alone similar to the layout of the dropout bear cover we submitted
Version 2- All 4 characters Blue Jay Named Z (Jay-Z), Wolf Named Kid (Kid Cudi), Camel named 3 (Chance The Rapper), and Lil Kanye
However, we recommend submitting V1 before working on v2. That way we can let you know if you are close to the mark we are looking for. We will only give you a green light for V2 if we feel as if you have a real chance at winning, that way we don't waste anyones time!
Each character should have its own individual personality, but less is more
While we are not against the characters having clothes, be careful to not over do it
I have included a photo of some album artwork that has a color scheme we like
DO NOT submit an exact copy of the dropout bear
In our opinion the design of Lil Kanye and supporting cast is what will truly set one designer apart from the other.
We are also in search of an illustrator to help us illustrate this book. If we choose you we will also offer this gig to you first.
