What i need from all you artists is a mascot for this new series, if your drawing wins you win a 3 month pro membership! awesome right?

What i Want:
I want a cute, cartoony looking IC, preferably an 8 legged one. Think brave little toaster status.

- Drawing must be vector and scalable.
- Must be released under Creative Commons, but when used your member profile will be cited.
- Must be posted as a comment before july 1st.
- Give it a name as well when you submit.

Sorry, I only do Robot art.


Ack! I just realized you shorted out the base and the emitter of the 2n2222 transistor you have on the board >:-D

I love this picture it's clever and cute all at the same time.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Exhibitionist circuitry... what next?!

When did it end?Who won?

I have named him chip.

Here's Chipster. I have the *.ai of it too... will hand it over if I win.


Here his name is mega pixel

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

Try vector magic, it works pretty well and it is online

Thanks TarScrap and Dombeef, I'll definitely try these out!

Your welcome! Also the first 2 pictures are free

Give Karbon14 a try. It's part of the KOffice suite, open source, and is available on Windows.

I am still learning this stuff, but here is an attempt: I call him: "ICknowledge"


No, but you are right, that IS what I SHOULD have used.....the LM386 is L-V audio amp.

Hello, I saw this contest and just had to draw something. I hope you like it. Its name is E.L.I.C short for "eight legged Integrated Circuit".

My 2nd attempt, they are both the same, but one has a tail instead XD They are love bugs...


If we can vectorize it, could you?

Well this is my first try. Can we do more than one?


Yes more than one is fine

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
