|Re: [eigen] choosing a mascot?|

Hi, Thank you _a lot_ for the updated sketch. It's great that you drew the same owl in several different settings for different parts of the Wiki. I love the "bugs" and "todo" ones, in addition to the "professor" and "engineer" ones that we discussed. They're all great. Maybe take the "silly professor" at the top-right and make it a little merrier (not sillier). Right now it looks almost sad. I care because this owl represents exactly what I've been looking for. David is sending bunches of owls while Ronnie is sending isolated ones. So it's not easy making a fair comparison. However, we are only selecting the main mascot. Elsewhere on the website we can use all the other owls. The main mascot must anyway be either a professor or an engineer. Which both Ronnie and David have sent. To answer Christian's question: OK, I'll upload the candidates and send a mail with links to them. So I think that I will upload 4 contenders: - Ronnie's last professor - Ronnie's last posting, the engineer (which I like better than any other by Ronnie) - I will split David's new image, extracting the professor at top-right(unless you send a merrier one) and the engineer at bottom-right. For reference only, I'll also upload David's unmodified new image. So one will really choose between individual drawings, not between artists.
