Request for Illustrations

Hi there LJ community,
I have a need and it was suggested to me that I approach the LJ community about it. I started writing a children' plant science book last year. It didn't get far because I couldn't find a decent image of my main characters and so it kinda' got shelved for the time being. This particular book is going to be about root vegetables and the main characters are a burrowing owl (Olivia), a worm (Wilbur) and squirrel (Sammy/Skippy). They are working names but I have to call them something. Anyway, I need a couple of sketches of these three characters. Olivia is a burrowing owl so she can be out during the day and because the book takes place in a typical South Florida garden. I'd like her to look a little on the cartoon side. Wilbur (though a worm and having no need of light or eyes to make his way) likes to appear like everyone else so he has thick glasses with eyes painted on them and a miner's light strapped to his head. Sammy/Skippy is a hyper squirrel with wild bushy hair on his head and red Converse sneakers on his feet.
Can anyone help me find some workable pictures?

As much as I wish I could draw, I can't unfortunately, but your description of the characters are really fun and inviting.
I hope you can find someone who is able to help you.

Thanks for the comment. I'm going to ask my daughter, too. I hesitate to ask since she has much on her plate and I don't want her to feel obligated to help me.

I'm sure she would love to help out and design those characters! :)

Sounds very interesting. Wish I could help you...I like drawing cats, never tried owls nor squirrels. A worm could be easier though. How many pages will your Plant Science Book have?

Thanks for the thought. The book will probably be no more than 20 pages. I tentatively have my artist daughter agreeing to do a few drawings for me. My dream is that if the book becomes a reality that it could be a mother/daughter venture.
