$10 for an entire scene illustration??? And you're only paying if it's "used"
That roughly translates to $5 - $3.33 an hour. Even the fastest and most skilled illustrators would only make $10 an hour, and you're not gonna get replies from them at that rate.
Why not ask Kathy Lee where she outsourced her work from?

Fledgling magazine in fantasy genre needs pictures of mythical creatures and children in adventurous, fantasy situations. Currently we need black and white, line drawings. We will pay $10 per line drawing used. (If your style fits our needs, it can add up and might lead to commissioned work.) Contracts are for first publication rights only.

We want classic looking images. As a point of reference, we like to original illustrations in the Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland, as well as the work of Brian Froud and Maurice Sendak. That being said, we love personal style and real artistry. Also, please indicate whether you can do glossy, color drawings. In the longer term, we are looking for covers and full color illustrations.

Perhaps this goes without saying but nothing grotesque, please. No Nickelodeon type cartoons, Anime, Primitivism, or highly stylized modernist art.

Respond with basic contact information, PDF samples of your drawings, and any other place where we can view your work (website, previous publications, etc.)
