:iconindiana-w: say : "It occurred to me that many of us do not know each other that well.

In the friendly spirit of the collaboration contest, I'd like to extend a greeting and blessing to all of you!

I am proposing this journal entry as a spot for people who do want to collaborate with someone else to find each other-especially seeing how many people do NOT want to collaborate.

It might be a good idea to post what kind of art you want to make, what category you want to explore, and what you are looking for in a collaborator for this contest."

In collaboration, do we both need to submit, or is submitting the single deviation fine if both are credited?

A single submission is enough ;) The ones you do with mrnakes is right ;)
