Hi! I am looking for someone skilled in Adobe Illustrator to work on a small project. I need an Illustration/Icon to accompany some text for a logo I'm working on. What I am looking for at this time is a very simple, minimal, stylish and contemporary black and white vector Icon. The completed (vector) illustration/icon, should stand on it's own as a very simple, elegant/sophisticated visual unit. Not be highly rendered - and be very appealing to the eye. Because the theme is in honor of Theodore Roosevelt, I would like the theme of the icon to reflect his signature (facial) signature visuals. That/those being a pair of small round, bi-focal glasses that he always wore and his mustache. I have attached an image for general reference/inspiration. I suspect that there are many other images available online, but I feel that this image really captures the essence of this man. The line weight of this illustration/icon, can be varied in line weight with heavy (stroke) emphasis in certain areas, (subject) to the overall integrity of the unit. I see this unit containing all or some of the following elements; #1) Eye glasses, with a small vertical attribute (hanging on left) suggesting the string/rope attachment to the glasses, #2) Possibly, (but not conclusive/optional) - some small suggestion of a nose lower shadow, and #3) An interpretation of his mustache. Please note the bridge detail in his signature glasses and shape of glasses. This small curved moment can possibly add some interesting contrast/element to the overall design. I do not want to completely dictate the visual construct of this final design, as you may be inspired to resolve this challenge in another manner. But, still achieving the goals (criteria) that I have in mind and have stated here in this brief. The end objective here is for simple visual moment suggesting the essence of President Theodore Roosevelts' facial features. It can be a lose/free-brush style, but must be elegant. I we can work out a PayPal payment for this gig. I do not have much time on this project.
