Inkscape is a vector oriented graphics program. I had used it before but not very heavy. I discovered some great tutorials on YouTube which show what a magnificent program inkscape is. So I invested some time to master inkscape.

A.o I remade the logo of this site. The original logo was derived from the title head of a Dutch journal: de Volkskrant. With copy and paste I had reshaped (with the Gimp) into de Volkerskrant, a name based joke we had used in our family since the seventies. The quality was not very impressive so I decided to remake the logo as an exercise in precise node editting in inkscape.

This pictures show one of the great advantages of a vector oriented program: the scalability of the images without any loss of quality
