Subject description: Graphic artists input welcome
 

My proposed new distribution Easy Linux remains a mystery, even to me.

But, the ideas are gradually coming together.

I have very briefly stated what Easy Linux is here, as well as a suggested logo:
http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00368

The SVG image looks basically OK, I suppose, but I would like it to not look so much like the original PNG that I found on the Internet.

If any artistic person feels inspired to tweak it a bit, make it look a bit more unique, keeping the friendly/welcoming/thumbs-up look of it, please go for it!

If no one does, after awhile, I might have a go at tweaking it a bit myself, though my initial attempts just made it look worse -- I don't seem to have that "artistic gene".

I think I can't do that as a graphics, though I got a picture in mind:

How about a smiling Puppy like, lying in a hammock, stretching out an arm and holding the thumb up?

Yeah, there are probably other ways to convey the message of "easy" in the logo.

Probably a picture of a strumpet would not be appropriate Smile

I probably don't want a "Puppy" icon in the logo, as the proposed distro is not a fork of Puppy, something different, just with lots of Puppy ideas in it.

Probably not the strumpet, but I can imagine a lazybones with thumbs up or even an Raptor or Eagle (grinning wide over the entire face) for the easiness of getting things done on a high level... etc.pp.

You could avoid the need to distribute any logos or background pictures with a simple gradient
background plus the text 'Easy OS'.

I looked at your 00sys_logger, that's amazing.

Yes, I suppose that is one way to design a logo. It would avoid all the hassles of trying to come up with a nice face/thumb-up or whatever.

I'm really looking forward to your latest creation! Already prepared an empty SD card for it.

A fresh and innovative approach is always welcome, especially when it simplifies Linux a bit more. Smile

Fantastic. I listened right through. I downloaded the mp3 file first.
The MaruOS interview is about 82 minutes in.

If you place the dog behind a computer it might tell -even a dog can use linux-.

Hi,

Headgear seems a plus, but perhaps an Australian bush hat with corks, and a silver cup in one hand/paw and thumb-up in the other.
