Since I just got some other graphics that were looking quite strange,
I guess so. *sigh*

I seem to recall that I was puzzled by the Debian logo, but I'm not

I can provide an EPS, does GIMP eat that?
I just took a look at the newest hand covers.
I like that artwork, it makes the cd special, really.
Very good work Christian! I'm also impressed by your skills.
However, here are some comments for further improvements:
. Black on Red is not easy to read, better use a light red background
if you need a background
. Black on dark grey (left side, left+above) is not easy to read.
Better use a light background.
. Shaded text on the left triangle looks scary. I would not use drop
in shadows there, just use a bold plain sans-serif font
(i.e. Arial, Helvetica, Humanist etc.)
. Just printing the DFSG/GPL on top of the entire image
is... umh... strange somehow. If it would be printed on just the
ball/egg that would be cool.
. One proposal lacks a triangle with background for the text
"LinuxTag 2002 Edition", you should use a spcial background to
ensure it is a different and important element.
. I'd rather like a sans-serif font for the Text "3.0 Woody" as well.
. Also, you should think about where and how to place sponsor logos.
With the current design... I had some problems, since there is not
enough free space on the right side and the artwork is too cool and
interesting to be printed over by a logo. :-)
