Awesome people!

You might have seen that KDE has a new Konqi drawing. Like our previous mascot, you don't see Konqi very often. That is not just because we don't love Konqi (at least, I do) but also because we don't have that many pretty pictures of Konqi.

For articles I'm always in a pickle when it comes to adding some images. I've been a bit creative myself but it often leads to things like this:

It is probably creative (if you get it, that is) but it is not very good. For an article about bug hunting I cut out the Konqi on the right out of the group pic. Yeah, also - it kind of works, but barely.

Then it hit me. Why not ask the artist who made these Konqi's to... make some more! I emailed Tyson Tan and he simply replied asking what and when.

And now: some awesome Konqi's are coming to the dot! Today, we released the first in a hopefully long line of articles with Awesome Konqi's. Check out our Frameworks konqi below:


As sebas said:
I'm actually quite impressed how well it depicts something as deeply technical and abstract as Frameworks 5.

Indeed. This makes me happy!
