Hello there. I have a children's book I want to publish w Amazon and need an illustrator. The book has a market in which it will be sold but it seems the majority of decent illustrators want a few thousand dollars to illustrate. I tried my nephew and neice as they are both in school and pretty skilled but both declined the project. LOL. I want really good illustrations but am assuming I won't make a few thousand back if using Amazon to publish it. I am considering contacting schools for interns at this point. Wondered if anyone has thoughts about illustrations and also if it is viable to make money w Amazon publishing after paying a few thousand out to an illustrator. Thanks for your time.
