Dear Oznerol, it recently struck me that it would be a pleasure to commission an illustration - and that it was, in fact, very foolish of me to have never previously done so (given we have been friendly for years, it was in fact quite unkind of me to have failed to send some of my business your way for which I can only apologise and ask your pardon!).
May I please ask if you would be interested in drawing up one of my requests for a fair price? (If you are interested, then my first request will almost certainly be a portrait of King Arthur, either as the first of the None Worthies or as the start of a series depicting the more famous residents of Camelot*).
*I'm actually sure which would please me better; we'll just have to wait & see.
Keep Well and please let me know if you are available & interested.
