Fedora-art-list Digest, Vol 22, Issue 42
 
Hi all,

I have been signed up to help for some time, but never did find out who to email and such so I hope no one minds me throwing in a "hello" here.Â* My name is Paul and I don't really know where to begin. For one, I don't have Fedora right now since my hard drive took a powder and Fedora with it. Anyway, I do a lot of graphics with Gimp and have had numerous jobs, won contests, and even offered a teaching job at our local college to teach Graphics with Gimp. So, being I would like to help out in any way I can, if there is anything, opinion, CG work, etc... that I can do, I would be glad to help.
Thanks all,

Paul

On which areas are you interested to work? Icons, desktop graphics, web
