The fabulously fervent folks in the Ubuntu France community have fashioned Ubuntu’s latest mascot animal into a first-rate new t-shirt design.
Not that that particular activity is new; the Ubuntu France team has created custom artwork to ‘showcase’ the past few Ubuntu releases — as you may well know if you follow this site over on Twitter:
Pretty nice, huh?
Since the Ubuntu shop closed down there’s no “official” outlet to get Ubuntu-branded merchandise like t-shirts. This has lead some amateurs to try their hand at producing a few bespoke efforts… to varying degrees of success!
But with a new Ubuntu LTS release looming, and a characterful new animal and adjective combo to colourfully illustrate, the French Ubuntu team has turned out a terrific new t-shirt — one that I think is their best work yet:
The new design will be available to buy in the coming months from the En Vente Libre website. It’ll be available in unisex and women’s fits, both on organic ring-spun cotton, priced from €15 (which will increase to €20 after the Ubuntu 20.04 release).
It would be available to purchase a bit sooner but… Well, you know why it isn’t.
On the subject of custom focal artwork, I’ve really enjoyed seeing what people have come up with using the Ubuntu 20.04 artwork assets that have been made available. There’s a great thread on the Ubuntu Discourse.
Although my little Ubuntu MATE powered microPC isn’t yet running Focal, I felt it needed a little feline flair to it anyhow…
