I’m currently burning the liveCD for LWE; I take it to the manufacturer’s in the morning. It has been a pretty draining few days- I’ve written a bit of content, done quite a bit of polish, learned more about gimp than I ever thought I would (still very little), and fought cases of the mornings to actually get stuff done in the afternoons and late nights.

Most importantly, I got four very serious responses to the art request, and ended up using a great one from Matthew Colyer for the splash, and gimping together some text from Matthew and Ryan Pavlik over the background. Some images:

CD label

A CD label, more or less.

line-drawing session splash

Final gnome-session splash screen.

The other image (aka the iso) is uploading now to now. MD5 is here.

Anyway, thanks to everyone, especially the artists and ubuntu folks, who helped me put this together. Hopefully it’ll be a big hit next week.

Oh, and GTHCGTH.
