What's with the Lion?

It was drawn by the well-known com­mer­cial artist Duane Bibby. He used this lion in the il­lus­tra­tions for Don­ald Knuth's orig­i­nal book, for Les­lie Lam­port's book, and for other books hav­ing to do with , so his work is fa­mil­iar to ev­ery­one in the com­mu­nity. Be­cause of that, his beau­ti­ful and in­sight­ful draw­ings have also graced con­fer­ence posters, tee shirts, and cof­fee mugs.

You can use this draw­ing if you like, ei­ther per­son­ally as on a lo­gin screen or pub­licly as on a web page. For pub­lic uses we would ap­pre­ci­ate an ac­knowl­edg­ment such as “CTAN lion draw­ing by Duane Bibby”. You can get high res­o­lu­tion ver­sions in case you want to touch up the scans.

Thank you, Duane!

In the mean time a vec­tor­ized ver­sion of the draw­ing in SVG for­mat is avail­able. It in­creas­in­gle re­places the pixel im­ages on the CTAN pro­tal.
