Me too!

But what did you think about the ballon picture (with it's poetic message of
breaking the bounds and leaving the world behind) being painted by the brush
(to include the statement that gimp beats them all ;-))?

Hey, I am no artist -- and will never be :-(
But I am a bit of a conceptionist :-)))

Carey is right with the branding!  Photoshop is known by it's eye, corel draw
by it's balloon (so maybe the balloon isn't very well suited for the gimp),
Illustrator by the venus and so on.

So I think we have to start thinking about one concept that illustrates the
power of the gimp.  Let's make a brain-storm and start a hurricane of ideas!

And then our well beloved artists can bring this ideas and concepts to life!

Just my 0.02 euro ;-)
