Here are my two entries, the larger is "Champ" the Op Amp and the low res fellow is "Skip" the DIP chip, hope you approve :) (I apologize for these not being vector, The GIMP can only do so much!)

btw Should you choose Champ or Skip, I would be able to vectorize these with Illustrator @ my university, it'd just be a day or two

I like this contest :) !
I just drew this guy. His name is chippy, and he'd like to be your mascot. If you want, I can redo this guy in any way you want. The first version is without marker outline, the second is with.

So basically, you have to draw something pretty much like that picture up there?

Also, does it have to be drawn on the computer or can it be done by hand?

It could be done by hand, but if you have a way to make it digital please do
