Nice.

In my enthusiasm I knocked out a fiver:

Damn. That's better than what I came up with (a rehashed 1 with Thornley and the pent ring pointing the other way).

My initial inspiration seems to have been nothing more than forming a monetary system, instead of the art to go with.

So, here's what I have in way of monetary units. I'm putting the art on the back-burner until I get some further inspiration:

1 Seed of Flax
5 Seeds == 1 Pound of Flax
25 Pounds == 1 Tonne of Flax
125 Tonnes == 1 Linum Usitatissimum
625 L.U. == 1 Plutocracy of Flax

Flax Seeds are coins (greyscale only -- pov bump-mappish for coin stamping)

1 seed (Darwin)
1 pound (Bob Black)
5 pounds (RAW, WSB - two versions)
1 tonne (Greg Hill)
5 tonnes (Thornley)
25 tonnes (PKD)
1 L.U. (Einstein - the tongue pic)
1 Pluto (Nurb's Eris)

Note: L.U. is not "L.U. of Flax" since L.U. is the name of the flax plant.

I think we should actually use these as currency among Discordians.  Break the Federal Monetary monopoly!

Thanks man. I updated it a bit and there's a 300dpi version going up on the downloads section.

I can't see that pic of Bob Black and I have no idea who he is, so can't really find an alternative. :lol:

He wrote "Beneath the Underground" and a bunch of stuff on anarchy (including an essay where he explains why the biggest problem with anarchy is anarchists). He was also sent a mail bomb by the SubGenius (or so he claims).

Not a real concern, since I can just drop the dual 5s and replace Black with RAW.

[Edit: you're gonna make me open submissions for a new version of the font, aren't ya? :D]

[Edit: Darwin.eps seems to be missing?]
