If you've been wanting to get someone to draw you an icon, and you have PayPal, why not tell him you're interested?
This offer won't last! (And I'm not just saying that because it sounds commercial-y; he's only thinking of doing this, and will only do it if there's enough interest, and needs to decide soon.)
Edit: Thanks, Kurrel! This post now has an icon Kurrel whipped up for me in a few minutes. Imagine what he could do, given a proper headstart! :}
