something’s burnin’…

Burning sulphur. What do you think? Post a reply here or join the conversation on fedora-art-list! The SVG is available if you wanna poke at it! (inspired by “Sulfur burning at night” by Johannes Hemmerlein at Wiki Media Commons.)

Bling banners The content area on right now is not that blingy. Due to particular bandwidth issues, we put small screenshots up that are less interesting than they could be if they were a bit larger. Here’s an idea for a replacement; I think it would be cool to have large banners like … Continue reading

Fedora Interview Banner

Just a quick banner design. Crack open the SVG and you can replace the text with any name you’d like. The background was done using the new 3D box tool (a Google Summer of Code project by Maximilian Albert) in the Inkscape .46 preview, now packaged in the devel repo by lkundrak (who is quickly … Continue reading

New Email Address

Hey, just a quick note that I’m trying to use duffy at as my main email address. Traditionally I have used my email address for Fedora-related stuff but I’m trying to separate the two now so it’s easier for me to access Fedora-related emails.

It’s ‘T’ Time!

Max started the conversation, and Nicu set up a wiki page for us to organize our ideas and designs for various Fedora T-shirts.
