Are Illustrated Portrait Profile Pictures desirable among sellers?

I’ve browsed through several seller’s profiles and have discovered that people split between using photos and illustrations for their profile pictures. As an Illustrator I’m wondering if having an illustrated photo has beneficial effects to both sales and the look and feel of a gig.

Is an illustrated ‘cartoon version’ of yourself as a seller a desirable feature? Is this a sought after item for people who maybe aren’t the best artist but still want an illustrated profile picture?

As I mentioned, I’m an illustrator who specializes in illustrated portraits. If you’re a seller interested in having a cartoon version of yourself for your profile photo check out my gig page:
