Introductions are stupid. Let artwork speak for artist?

This is Open to correction: but I think it's on the wiki somwhere, that
those without oss skills could\would\should be mentored.

As a recent lister, there should be a welcome for those who have at
least got the courage to intro themselves. As it is hard to provide an
example created with the programs, unless one asks for the help
\knowledge to do so. There are a myriad of artists out there,
who maybe just need that bit of encouragement to take up the oss
armour (no pun Nico), and a "get on with it", in this case may not be
the best approach. 

Currently am printing out the "inkscape manual" by Tavmjong Bah,
am getting there, but it's a slow road for me, I sleep a lot

Even a weak bulb may help the overall neon lighting.
