Illustrate / Design a Cover / Novel

I have just completed writing my first sci-fi novel, and I need to find an illustrator. I'm looking for someone who can not only design my cover, but also can create an illustration at the beginning of every chapter that summarizes the action/story line in the chapter. There are 16 chapters in the book.

While I have a few ideas of what I'd like to see, overall, this is about the winner of this project being able to design something from the ground up. The winner would need to be able to come up with original designs for a few ships. (I'm not looking for architectural designs. Just something that looks good and believable.) The winner would also need to be able to come up with original character illustrations, based on the information provided in the novel, plus some input from me.

This is about YOU, the illustrator, being imaginative and original. I write the story, and I have somewhat of an idea of what I'd like to see. What the winner of this project comes up with be used not only for this novel, but for all future novels in this series to follow. (Yes, I'd like someone who thinks he or she might be around to illustrate future novels in this series as well.)

As this is my very first novel, I'm working on a budget. This is an opportunity for someone to perhaps get some exposure and experience and make a name for himself (or herself). My novel is currently being edited by another Freelancer, and I have not yet submitted to a publisher.

If you like the sci-fi genre and you think you've got what it takes to draw ships and characters, along with the cover of a book; you have the imagination to take this from scratch and build it into something; you're willing to be around as the series continues to be developed; and most of all, you're not going to ask for the moon for compensation (because frankly I don't own the moon); I'd like to hear from you. I'll obviously want to see a small sample of your work, too. Submissions without a sample will not be considered. Those who are shortlisted will get a small excerpt from the actual novel (one of the chapters) to see if you are interested in continuing, and perhaps to submit an actual sample of what you would provide based on the novel itself.

If my expectations are too high, that's OK too. This is a learning experience for me. But I'm hoping there are at least a few people out there willing to take a chance on me, as I am willing to take a chance on them.
