    Need help from a sketch artist

    OK I am starting a new adventure and need a sketch of a Frog playing a Cigar Box Guitar. Maybe setting on a stump or by a pond or something. The new site will be called Frog Pond Guitars and I cant draw

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Have a community college nearby? Check with their art department. Maybe even a high school. Good luck.

    I have a tlented nephew who could do that for you. He doesn't have a personal computer, but I could be a go between for you. Would you be interested in seeing some of his work?

    I would suggest you definitely want the image to be a digital one. Would also think of having the frog in many different poses like standing lying down propped up etc to use as an icon for dressing up pages all over the show on the website without repeating the same image.

    Great idea and good luck with the new venture i think its gonna be a hit.

    Where is Ken....he could even compose a gingle for you.
    cheers

    All great ideas folks

    Steve I like your sketch you have the right idea and yes Roger I would like to see some of your nephews ideas also.

    Rob I think you are right about different poses but what do you mean by Digital

    Thanks everyone.
