You may or may not know that I am a keen scientist. For now, let's start by saying that I am approaching the end of my PhD in Oct/Nov 2013. You also may or may not know that tradition in a PhD thesis dictates that you can have one page to yourself to do whatever you like.
I would like to have a full-page commission of the dragon scientist for the preamble of my PhD thesis. For now, I have no idea of the composition, and for now, I am searching for an artist who is willing to do pro bono work. Once this is done, we can arrange a plan as to how it will look.
This is a serious document that will be completed sometime late this year. I am not asking just to obtain some quick-and-dirty artwork for my benefit and for some frivolous reason - I would really like artists to offer me their talents. I also do not expect high-effort CGI artwork; my expectations are a pencil/pen sketch or marker-pen colour artwork. If you wish to be given some small amount of money [say, $10 to cover the costs of materials], then I am sure that can be arranged.
If you can spread the word about this, I would be rather grateful.
