King Diamond logo

12 Feb, 2015

I traced the King Diamond logo from a t-shirt, and just for fun, made a desktop background. I aimed for well-worn vintage t-shirt style.

As usual GIMP XFC and original SVG.

Thundercats

16 Nov, 2014

I have been watching quite a bit of Thundercats lately (the original series) and naturally I couldn't resist doing something with the logo.

Thundercats Rust

This image was made by following the great metal plate typo tutorial by Chrisdesign as well as his colorstripe brushes. Textures by cgtextures.com.

Growing up in the early 1990's in Sweden we didn't have Saturday-morning cartoons, we had Sunday-morning cartoons. For most kids this meant about an hour of Thunderbirds, Inspector Gadget, Sailor Moon and, of course, Thundercats. I wasn't most kids, I had to go to Sunday school each week, which meant no cool cartoons. That is, unless I could get away with faking being sick or sneaking home early.

So, as an adult I take great pleasure in re-watching these classics (and being an atheist!).

Simon the Sorcerer 2 background

I created a new stitch-together background from the map screen in Simon the Sorcerer 2. It's available both with and without the logo.

Sadly, I had to amputate the clouds to make a better transition.

The GIMP XCF file is available here.

The GPL

GIMP colour palettes have the file extension .gpl. How cute is that?

Can you see the fnords?

My new background image is a rip-off of the Boing Boing Fnord t-shirt. Apologies to Rob Beschizza, but your design was too good not to play around with!

Fnord!

IF YOU DON'T SEE THE FNORD IT CAN'T EAT YOU, DON'T SEE THE FNORD, DON'T SEE THE FNORD...

If you dislike amateurishly applied GIMP filters I suggest you check out the unadulterated SVG image.

Stay puft!

Inspired by the awesome glow-in-the-dark Ghostbusters t-shirt I received as a a Christmas gift I decided to trace and redraw the logo as vector graphics.

Ghostbusters

I ended up with two background images, one vanilla, straight from Inkscape, and another with a "distressed" look courtesy of GIMP. It's kind of an amateurish effort as I'm still teaching myself GIMP, apologies!

As a bonus here's the SVG for the logo:

I claim no copyright on these as the logo is partially traced, and it's obviously already a copyrighted and trademarked work.
