The guy wants to hire someone! There are plenty of reasons to hire people; he's even named a few.
It's fair enough to not want to do the work yourself, but still want to have personalized and professional assets for your game!
All else fails, a little googling and linked-in stalking might turn up some results. If you want someone good you're probably going to be paying per hour, or perhaps per asset. Good luck finding someone that suits your needs and budget! I'd be open with them about what you can pay, and work with them on it, based on their prior experience and how much time it's going to take them.
