Open Source illustration: Oxford Botanic Gardens

This week I've been brushing up on Inskcape, the open source vector drawing program. I've been following the helpful how-to manual by Tavmjong Bah, one of the lead developers, which he's kindly made available online for free (you can also buy the paper book).

Here are some drawings I made in the greenhouses at Oxford Botanic Garden & Arboretum, and some Inkscape illustrations made with them. (The faces are inspired by paintings of Hans Holbein.)  When using open source software it makes sense to release the results freely too. Here are the drawings I used, in SVG format. You are welcome to download and re-use under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. I'd love to see what you make.
