Hello Richard, My name is Kelly and I would like to hire you to do an illustration of a photograph. I am thinking of trying my hand at creating a children's book or Sunday school material. I would like to use a picture of myself as a basis for a character. I saw some cute illustration styles in your portfolio. I would like to send you some pictures from which you could do a few sketches - different styles of depicting the character, ranging from more realistic to more cartoonish. I want to find a look that appeals to young children. Please let me know if this is something that you would be interested in and if you think it suits your experience. If we do it, it would be about 20 illustrations. Are you a painter as well as an illustrator? Thank you!
