Hi Eric,

Many thanks for this input!

How strongly do you feel about facial expressions? My understanding is 
that these are very difficult to do well, and also very expensive. We 
will discuss if there are ways to convey interaction and emotions yet 
without using facial expressions as such -- would that work for you?

Also, any thoughts on the illustration for person in the image "Person 
am Computer_6.png" sent in the previous batch (last Thursday), except 
for the color red? I'm more interested in the shape of that figure.

Finally, you say "least offensive" from which I infer that you find 
these representations offensive -- can you explain why offensive?

Many thanks,
   Shadi
