Hello Dave and welcome to the art team. I look forward to working with
you as well.

I don't know know how much you followed the happenings here in the past,
so I'll shortly summarize some of the projects you might help with.

 * We are finalizing the artwork for F9 [1] and you perhaps noticed we
started discussing about the artwork for F10 [2]. If you have any ideas,
comments, work, etc. feel free to share them with us.

 * We are making the new Fedora icon theme, called Echo [3]. Sadly
enough it is currently actively developed only by me and Luya
Tshimbalanga and we don't have enough time to make fast progress. So any
help is welcome here as well.

 * I am developing the Fedora default gtk engine/theme, Nodoka [4],
which is currently reaching 0.7.0 stable version that will be included
in F9 and I hope to start working on 0.8 branch after the release. If
you have any suggestions (design, code, etc.) feel free to post them.

There are also various smaller tasks like design service [5] or
hackergotchi service [6].

Though this is not a complete list, I hope it gave you some insight as
to what are we doing now.

If you have any questions about the happenings, how can you help with
the above (or other artwork) projects, or any other thing that concerns
art team, feel free to ask :)
