I'm a professional illustrator who needs models to pose for book cover illustrations. I'm always on the lookout for local/semi-local models.
~~~Note: I'm moving to New Zealand on January 1st, 2014 so if you're a Kiwi and you're getting a friend request from me, it's because I'd love to work with you when I arrive!
Clients include (but not limited to): Harlequin, Penguin, Simon & Schuster, Harcourt, Random House, Pearson, Hyperion, Abrams, Houghton Mifflin, Harper Collins, and Bloomsbury.
If you're in the Auckland, New Zealand area (or wouldn't mind a drive to Rodney district), feel free to leave me a note here or send me an email if you'd ever be interested in modeling for book jacket illustrations from time-to-time. I pay $150 NZD (plus some additional for travel) for your time and shoots rarely take longer than one hour.
