Default Commissioned work for Free Software project?

specifically targeted at Education and Library usages.

I've been a DB subscriber for years and years, and the topic for artwork for

artwork, and I proffered your name as someone who's work I'd always admired.

The rest of the developers agreed that it made sense to contact you for a
commission, and so, here we are.

We were wondering if you'd be willing to do a commission for us that we could
include on the DVD we produce. You'd need to license the picture in such a way
that we could freely distribute it, either by GPL'ing the image, or assigning
it one of the Creative Commons licenses. We'd like something education
related, like a library or a classroom.

I'm not sure what you charge for commissions of this nature. Edubuntu itself

If you could let me know, that would be great.
