Just to be sure there is no misunderstanding: The image with map and
Latin motto currently serves as a sample only. Please look at the gnu
sketches only for the moment and tell me which looks most gnu-ish to
you. The final version will have map, drop shadow and motto, too, but
at the moment, I am working on the line art part since this is the
central element.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into it.

I am using xfig and / or sketch with and without autotrace (with and
without pstoedit). Each has have some advantages and disadvantages. 
I can tell you afterwards which of them I used mostly.


Kudos to Frank Heckenbach for much appreciated help with autotrace :-)
