GNU and Freedo

An original redesign of the Dynamic Duo to illustrate GNU/Linux-libre, by José Miguel Silva Lara and Márcio Alexandre Silva Delgado. The GNU character and the penguin character, here called Freedo, are available in full colors, 16 colors, grayscale, black&white (on white or on black), and in line for coloring books and alternate designs. Thanks to the Silva family for their contribution!
