Thank you for your posts. I am very glad there is interest in this project. As promised I have attached the writing below along with an email address for quotations. I have also added a little story board of ideas I had for the artwork but being a non-artistic person please note that they are suggestions only.
I will respond to all emails successful and unsuccessful alike. Payment will be made in USD to a nominated bank account (if I ever get PayPal working properly that is an option also). Payment will be made as each page is completed for safety of artist and writer.
Obviously I will be looking at cost vs quality as the selection criteria. I didn't mention this before but there is a publisher attached to this project (Imaginites) so royalties are an option if you would like to place both options on your quote.
I think that is everything you would need to know but please feel free to ask about anything I have neglected to mention.
A Daddy’s Lullaby
Rest now little angel
close your weary eyes
The world is safe in slumber
as darkness takes the skies
Your day has been a long one
in a place we made unkind
But a sleeping world awaits you
born of unsoiled minds
A land that's pure with pleasure
where toy stores line the streets
The wind is cool and gentle
and soft grass strokes your feet
Where flowers dance in meadows
and nothing brings you harm
You feel only contentment
You’re safe in daddy's arms
The moonlight falls and shimmers
like ribbons through your hair
The starlight marks your pathway
and helps to guide you there
You're loved with no conditions
every movement makes us proud
We hang on every footstep,
every moment, every sound
So dream now little angel
of the paths your life might take
And sleep safe in the knowledge
I'll be here when you wake
And though our lives will take us
through days both good and bad
you'll always be my princess
and I’ll always be your Dad.
