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

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

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".

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
