Yes welcome to Fedora, and the art list. I think you'll find everyone on the
list pretty friendly! I don't know how much "open source" experience you
have, but I will say that in my experience so far, a lot of it involves
locating something that needs to get done and then just doing it.
Good place to start with that is:
I was a little confused about the process described, but it says to
"introduce yourself to the list" so it seemed like this was the way to go.
My professional design experience is rather limited, but I've spent my
whole life honing my artistic skills, primarily in drawing, but I've done
digital design as well and have used GIMP as well, in addition to basic
HTML/CSS coding. I'm willing to learn and think this would be a great
opportunity to be involved in the Fedora community, as I recently installed
Fedora 16 onto my netbook.
