Hi Javier,

here is a list of sites that do what I said

It will be great if anybody else knows other sites.

we don't have a Foundation yet. But once we have this might be a source of

In the meantime, we could indeed get our artwork on there. I checked out a few
sites and it seems it won't be hard to get artwork on there. So the question
is mainly - is there someone who's interested in this, wants to drive it.

That means bugging artists to get artwork and uploading it to the sites...

Interested, Alin?

Hi Javier,

Mine is a 13 inch macbook pro.... not too small not to big... it does the
job and everybody is happy...

I suspect that one of the many sites that do skin crap... maybe allow the
artists to upload their work and share the revenue... I was thinking

Hi there,

I have a macbook pro aluminium crap on which I run opensuse... Due to
my usage the poor thing it is exposed to scratches... my wrist watch
mainly... As I have no intention of getting rid of the mac, the watch
or the habit, I decided to get a skin to protect the mac...

This is where I got an idea... It seems that there are plenty of
that offer the possibility to skin your laptop.
I was wondering if at project level we can "associate" in a way with
one of them... The project provides official artwork to skin the
device, we the supporters can buy it, for each bought the project
gets back few shekels...

What do you think about? would be a good way to increase visibility of
the project and maybe get some money for it too.

We would need to know the requirements (tos, type of image, size, etc)
