Is the DragonFly logo available in higher resolution
anywhere?  I can only find the 134 x 82 pixels one
on the web site.

Oh, and another question:  Who owns the copyright on
that logo?  I mean, whom do I have to ask for per-
mission if I wanted to reproduce the logo somewhere
(on a web site, DVD cover or whatever)?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards

Is anyone interested in stuff like this: http://home.comcast.net/
~pgrunwald/debiangoodies.html done for DragonFlyBSD?

I've moved over to the beastie side!

I looked at Devon's page and I'm still not sure who owns this. It is not my intention to make a loot hear, rather just promote and make money for the cause. (I'm still in the hole for the debian stuff but that's ok...).


I like this. A friend of Sascha Wildner made a few of those case stickers for DragonFly and it looks really nice. I've discussed doing a new logo with several people, but it's surprisingly difficult for a few reasons:

 o	It needs to be something that doesn't look like a bug
 o	It needs to be something that does look professional
 o	It needs to be something that doesn't look cartoonish

I'm fine doing more artwork for the project, but I'd like some more ideas. The last idea I had was to make a dragonfly which was a cross between a dragon and a dragonfly. Sounds neat, but it ends up looking ridiculous. I'm also thinking of doing some 3D model, but again, I'm not sure if that's going to turn out great.

You've certainly got my permission to use my art for this. Various people (including myself) have tried to get in touch with Joe Angerson regarding the copyright, but he doesn't respond / hasn't responded for whatever reasons. My versions need to be reworked a little bit. I just recently downloaded them and noticed that they're actually only the half-finished versions. So I'll need to fix that.

In any case, if you have ideas regarding something original, please let me know and I will help bring it into the picture (drumroll, please ;P).

Kind regards,
