I have mostly been interested in fine art, although I do all kinds of stuff ranging from minimalist abstractions to representational landscape and figurative drawings.  I have a couple of print illustrative publication credits and a large number of juried shows I have been in.  I am a former President of one non-profit art gallery and a former treasurer of another.  I am a current co-chair of the annual California State Bar Association Bench and Bar Art Exhibition.

Have you any works available online?

If you are interested in icons, there is an ongoing effort in need of
more help https://fedorahosted.org/echo-icon-theme/ (the icons are made
with Inkscape).

I am personally curious about your webcomic, for a while I published one
too, it was centered around Fedora:

That's cool.

While some legal help is useful, we ultimately follow the advice of the
Fedora-legal and Red Hat lawyers, maybe this is an interesting place for
you: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-legal-list
