Pope's gift Obamafied!



The gift President Obama will present to Pope Benedict XVI when he visits the Vatican has been announced. But the precious stole, which once graced the remains of St. John Neumann, a well-known American saint, has been updated by the Obama children to be more inclusive and multi-cultural with the addition of rainbow-colored handprints.

Illustrator sketch idea for Open Source Catholic logo



This is just an initial idea for the Open Source Catholic logo. I'm posting this URL to the OSC forum. Feel free to leave comments here or there. I'm not married to the color. Just wasn't sure what color to use. Later I'll work on giving it a more 3D look, I think. And I've got to figure out what typeface would work best with it.




This is another sketch based on an illustration by St. Isadore who, according to some, is the patron saint of computer programmers and users. I like the stained glass look of it and the cross that is created by the design but I think I can come up with a more cool look for the basic design. I'm going to play around with the 3D options in Illustrator I think.

UPDATE:



This is the latest version with a gradient from the top to the bottom of the logo.

The condescending notion...

The condescending notion that mediaeval artists saw the world in linear perspective but were too crude to learn how to paint it is extremely silly. Mediaeval artists painted the world exactly as they saw it. And no accusation of crudity can be fairly leveled at them. These men built the cathedrals at Rheims and Amiens and Chartres. They designed and built them without any notion of trigonometry or calculus; without so much as graph paper. These were not men who had difficulty imagining three-dimensional spaces abstractly; they were far better at it than modern men who need AutoCAD to design a rectangular prism of steel and glass.

You no fool me, Ted Turner

According to Ted Turner, in the next 30 to 40 years humans will become cannibals once the earth is scorched and most of the people die. Those left over, Ted says, will be forced to become cannibals.

But in the same article it is noted that Ted has launched a partnership with Lutherans and Methodists to fight malaria in Africa.

Since Ted thinks most of us are going to be dead in 30 to 40 years, the only reason I can figure for Ted wanting to help those in need is that he plans to survive the apocolypse and wants to ensure he's got a good source of people to eat.

I'm just saying!
