So, because I'm jealous of tigert and garrett and jimmac and other sexy art bloggers, I will tonight for the first time post my own sexy GNOME artwork, destined for a special LWE live CD. The catch is that it all is... not very good, and I'd like GNOME community artists to propose better :) Catch #2 is that there is about 24 hours to come up with better :) Please, please take a look at what I've done and email me better ones! Think of it as a one-day art sprint, and as inspiration for the more generic 2.10 images I need Very, Very Soon Now.
The images I have hacked up:
A gnome-session splash screen.
A CD label, more or less.
My artwork request is pretty desperate, but all other news about the project is good.
- Big thanks to Seb and Jeff for pointing out solutions to problems I was having with making epiphany the default browser.
- Before I wake up, if the cable modem doesn't flake out, I should have uploaded an iso to tieguy.org if people want to play with it.
- This iso is not LWE-specific except for branding. The software is fine for a generic 2.9.90 liveCD, and I totally want images suitable for a generic GNOME liveCD.
- If people have other events they have coming up, I'm pretty happy to accept artwork and pump those onto a CD as well. I have not experimented yet with changing the default language on the CD, but I can, so if you have a non-en_US event coming up, don't rule that out- talk to me.
