Artist Wanted

I'm looking for a cover artist for an upcoming project which is on the fast track. Your chance for glory! (Unfortunately, not your chance for wealth; I'm on a shoestring with this one.) Details on request, but please folks I am *not* asking for leads on artists you like, or names of artists you like, or the Deviantart site of artists you like. I am only looking to hear from the artists themselves. If you have time to do a cover commission in the next two weeks (6"x6", b&w, first rights), please get in touch with me either in the comments here or at joseph@josephbloch.com. Here's a little something for inspiration, one of my favorite pieces ever from the pages of Dragon magazine.

EDIT (9/16/2011): An artist for the project has been selected. Many thanks to everyone who responded; I will be keeping all your emails on file for the future; there's a lot more where this came from (hopefully).

I was just talking to the guy (Diesel) who owns that piece a few weeks ago. He was working at TSR when Todd Lockwood came to work there and saw it on Todd's desk. Todd ended up giving it to him.

Hey there. :) My friend Dennis pointed me to your post. My style it pretty different from the piece you posted, though it's absolutely gorgeous!

My DA site is http://lonnieann.deviantart.com/ and my email is lonnie.ann@gmail.com. If you're interested in working with me, shoot me an email. I'm a Senior in the Sequential Art Program at SCAD and could alway use more portfolio pieces. :)

Please check out my Deviant Art gallery. I also have a few drawings on my blog.
I have never had anything published and my style is based on comic book illustration but I will do my best to adapt it if need be.
I am of course willing to take all the input and suggestions you want to give.
I will stay in touch and show you the progress of each step of the illustration for your approval.
Thank you and have a great day.

Hi Joseph, my husband showed me your post.
My style is a bit more comic than the b+w piece you posted but I do work a lot in black pen.

Hope you find your cover piece.
