Probably should have just learned how to draw when I was younger...

How much should I expect to spend on this little piece of freelance graphic work?
I'm thinking of starting a web site that will feature writing from various authors, each of whom are simply pseudonyms for myself and other various contracted writers. To sell the idea that these are coming from different people, I'd like to feature icons/ graphics of the "authors" in question. I would provide very basic information - "the character is a white female in her mid 20s, background of urban environment behind her" - but other than that, the artist would have considerable leeway in the design. I would like to have 8-12 of these done, and they would adorn the "about our authors" page of the site as well as pages whose content would be from the point of view of that character. Size would probably be in the 250x350px range, and in a style I can best describe as "cartoony."
Where can I go to find people looking for short term graphic work of this nature, and how much can I expect to pay someone for reasonable work? I did some initial Googling, but didn't know how well some of those sites could be trusted.
