Eighth Generation is seeking a Coast Salish artist to partner with for an exciting illustration project. Proudly owned by the Snoqualmie Tribe since 2019, Eighth Generation is an artist-centric blanket and home goods company that works with Indigenous artists to design products for a global audience. We are currently seeking a Coast Salish artist to help up bring a Children’s Book project to life.

Interested artists are asked to submit the following three (3) items to be considered:

• Two-to-four (2–4) images of their original, existing* work that best represents their
artistic style. While we welcome contemporary artwork created using modern technology, artists using traditional artmaking techniques such as drawing and painting are also encouraged to submit photos or scans of their work. If selected for the partnership, our Product Development Team will assist with digitizing your work and adapting it for print as needed.
• A short statement introducing yourself and your work.
• Contact information including your email address and phone number, as well as a link to your website, art Instagram account, or portfolio if you have one.

*Eighth Generation is not asking artists to create new pieces for the purposes of this call for art. As a business founded by an artist, Eighth Generation recognizes that creating art is hard work, and never asks artists to work for free. Please only submit artwork that is already created.

Artists who enter into a collaboration with Eighth Generation will receive a licensing fee for using their artwork, Artists should be aware that timeline for this project is lengthy and can take up to two years from artwork development to product launch.
