Overview

I'm a Fellow at the Shuttleworth Foundation where I work on a bunch of projects all related to using technology to drive open education in South Africa. Projects like supporting communities of practice that share content online, developing open assessment banks of items to save teachers time and working with volunteers to write textbooks that are free and open.

I keep a blog related to all my projects and, contrary to popular wisdom, personal stories. I use categories to separate the two.

I can't face using a "thoughtful" photo of myself as the headline image to my blog and a cartoon depiction would be more fitting, especially seeing as I'm mixing my personal and work blogs. I'm quite taken with this crowdsourcing idea so I'm here to try to get the cartoon made.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The audience is the general public, a mixture of work related visitors, information seekers and those seeking personal updates. Some of the cartoon features will resonate with work related visitors and some will resonate with those interested in personal stories.

Requirements

I want a cartoon that will ultimately be part of the header on this blog: http://www.markhorner.net

Cartoon content all clearly visible:

1) My cartoon self on a camping chair with a laptop (Lenovo T500 if it mattered ;)
2) A bottle and glass of red wine
3) A potjie on a fire in the background, this image captures the idea quite well:

Cartoon styles I like:

http://media.smashingmagazine.com/i…/final.jpg

I'm not tied to the style, but I'd like something that will scale down reasonably well, not to an icon size but possibly to fit on a business card.

I've attached some pics and sketch to help out. I'm not a designer so please use your own judgement as to the best way to include the elements and don't feel you have to stick to the attached sketch - its just an idea.

The final files need to be in a vector format suitable for printing purposes as I may need to include it on printed media as well as png files for web-usage.
