My name is S.F.Kislev. I’ve searched for scientific illustrators online and found your work, which I like. Are you available for commission work?
The work is unusual. I have in mind visions of organic beings. I’ve attempted to describe them in as much detail as I can. Here, for instance, is a description:
Can you please draw this being for me? While I can describe it in detail, I am not skilled enough to draw it myself. You can draw an external view, and internal view, with or without cross-sections, with or without stippling, etc; whatever you need to best translate the description.
The illustration has to be done by hand, with ink, on nice paper. The size doesn’t really matter, but I think something like A4 works well. If you agree, the process will be simple: you’ll do a rough sketch, I will ask questions and make specific comments, and when we agree you will ink the illustration.
I know this is an odd request. I hope you find it interesting. I’m looking forward to working with you on realizing these visions, which come to me in my sleep.
