Starving artist request

Greets:

Just to throw this out, one of my clients is looking for someone to do up a mascot for their site. He's interested in finding a starving webcomic who does half decent work and would/needs to throw a few bucks their way. The job is fairly simple, four head and shoulder line drawings of a male character with really just the mouth area changed between them. A full body colored version may be needed in the future.

I;ve emailed a couple of mid level webcomics but 1) they've not gotten back to me or 2) they're already too busy or do not have interested in the job.

The person who does my graphic work is a tad behind on other third party assignments.

Anyone have any suggestions?

regards,
