Jurassic

03 Jul, 2015

So, I went a little crazy in anticipation of the Jurassic World movie and made a couple of wallpapers...

... and I still haven't got around to doing the actual Jurassic World logo.

Still, I prefer the old logo, less busy and a lovely combination of red/black/yellow.

King Diamond logo

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.

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...

I claim no copyright on this image. TV texture courtesy of Chaotic Resources.

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.

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.

Alfred Hitchcock backgrounds

28 Dec, 2009

I was given a DVD collection containing the early films by Alfred Hitchcock for Christmas this year. The box set cover art included a very good two colour profile of the master of suspense, in other words, perfect for scanning, tracing and converting to SVG!

I made a nice desktop background, and also a bonus variant with only the rough outline and signature.
