I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!
Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

Q. Should journalists program computers as well? Or at least know the process?
Does anybody remember the first reporter to use a telephone? Was that person called a “telephone-assisted reporter?” I like to think of my contribution not as a computer-assisted reporting, but as the application of scientific method.
