Subject: Application for position of Illustrator
Dear Mr. Gonzales,
I read your advertisement recently for an experienced Illustrator, and I am a great choice for this position. Please find compelling reasons in the attached resume to this cover letter.
Over the last six years as a professional Illustrator, I have gained a considerable amount of experience and knowledge in the type of illustration that you are seeking for your media production company. I have a Master’s Degree in Art Illustration from East Carolina University, and I also studied with Genius Circuit, LLC for one year during my college grad years. At present, I am working as an Assistant Illustrator at Precision Graphics; and have found your ad promising as you are seeking an Illustrator for your company, and I am seeking to accelerate to a higher position at a successful and desirable media production company. I am extremely professional, talented in illustration, and comfortable with all tools and systems related to the work. On a more general level, I am also great with people, a strong communicator, and am always positive-as I love what I do.
Thanks for reviewing this cover letter and resume, and I look forward to speaking with you about this Illustrator position. Please use the contact information above.
