Linux-Penguins

Originally drewn by Larry Ewing (http://www.isc.tamu.edu/~lewing/) (with the GIMP) the Linux Logo has been vectorized by me (Simon Budig, http://www.home.unix-ag.org/simon/).

This happened quite some time ago with Corel Draw 4. But luckily meanwhile there are tools available to handle vector graphics with Linux. Bernhard Herzog (bernhard@users.sourceforge.net) deserves kudos for creating Sketch (http://sketch.sourceforge.net), a powerful free tool for creating vector graphics. He converted the Corel Draw file to the Sketch native format. Since I am unable to maintain the Corel Draw file any longer, the Sketch version now is the "official" one.

Anja Gerwinski (anja@gerwinski.de) has created an alternate version of the penguin (penguin-variant.sk) with a thinner mouth line and slightly altered highlights. The sketch and SVG version also feature a nifty drop shadow.

The third bird (penguin-flat.sk) is a version reduced to three colors (black/white/yellow) for e.g. silk screen printing. I made this version for a mug, available at the friendly folks at http://www.kernelconcepts.de/ – they do good stuff, mail Petra (pinguin@kernelconcepts.de) if you need something special or don't understand the german :-)

These drawings are copyrighted by Larry Ewing and Simon Budig (penguin-variant.sk also by Anja Gerwinski), redistribution is free but has to include this README/Copyright notice.

–––> Grab them all in a single handy package! <–––

Andrew Jorgensen created a Windows MetaFile of the penguin for the use with OpenOffice. It is available here.

The use of these drawings is free. However I am happy about a sample of your mug/t-shirt/whatever with this penguin on it...

Have fun
