Free Inkscape Penguin & Cat / Dog Silhouette Images!

I have mastered a graphics design program, well, as much as a non-techie can.

I first got into Inkscape because I didn't want to pay a graphic designer's premium fee on a simple T-shirt design for softball.  What is Inkscape? It is a FREE SVG editor (standard vector graphics).  That means that no matter how large or small you make any image, you don't get that grainy look you find when you make your picture too big.  Big win!

My first project was creating this for my newlywed class's softball team, obviously a comic book theme:

From then on out I have decided that I am completely capable of any basic graphic design work that needs to be done.

And my favorite, the penguin with plaid hat.  I know, it is adorable.  He is on a Christmas Party invitation I created!

I am now working on my family's Christmas card / newsletter, which is different than I usually do.  I am including these adorable fellows, cat and dog silhouette! 

Feel free to download or use any Inkscape image I've provided, but if you use it on your website I ask that you link it back here!  

Happy Hollidays!

  1. Hello!
    I happened upon your Inkscape image yesterday and would love to use it in a design piece I am working on. It is for a registered non-profit in Wisconsin fighting the effects of childhood cancer. We are jut beginning, but the image has the potential to be used on a facebook cover photo, letterhead, business cards, a blog banner design as well as in print and web marketing items. Please let me know if this is okay or if you are a user on any stock imaging sites that would allow me access to the image for purchase.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thanks so much!

    1. So glad you could use it! Especially because you are a animal rights group - I have rescued all my animals and think you are doing a wonderful thing. Enjoy!
