Black & white sketches needed for kid's book

I'm looking for someone who can do very realistic black & white drawings of horses and kids for a children's book. The book will have 10-12 illustrations, and the horse featured in the story is a black Canadian horse.

I had an illustrator lined up but unfortunately she was forced to cancel last-minute, so I'm hoping to find a replacement. The drawings need to be done by the end of April, and payment would be on a profit-sharing basis (i.e., as the book sells). I've written three previous horse-related novels but none were for children, so I can't predict sales with any kind of accuracy.

I'm attaching some examples of what I mean by "realistic". I don't expect this level of detail, and it wouldn't reproduce properly in a book anyway. They're just by way of example. If anyone is interested I can give you further details via private message.

Hi TigerLily! Thanks for the offer. I actually found someone here on the forum who is doing the illustrations, but I don't think I can delete this thread :)
