Dear Mr. Sustaita,
I was very excited to see your recent advertisement seeking an Illustrator for your company. Daktronics is one that I have long followed, and I know I would make an excellent addition to your team.
I have a Masters Degree in Illustration and Graphics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and over five years of experience as an Illustrator. In this role, I worked with a team of seven Illustrators on hundreds of client projects to include the main functions of illustration: computer and movie game generation, development and implementation of illustration dimensional imaging and sketches. I am a skilled Illustrator, take direction well, and have a very detailed and precise approach to my work.
I know that you will find that my experience and skills are the perfect match for your position from my enclosed resume. Contact me at (555)-555-5555 to discuss this opportunity further. Thanks so much for your time and consideration.
