Free-Software Dealers

 [Gnu and Tux as messengers of free software in the
           desolate land of proprietary software]

In this very nice painting by Péhä <contact.peha@posteo.net>, Gnu and Tux are depicted as warriors. Gnu leans on his ax, and carries a shield adorned with the copyleft logo. Tux carries a sword. From the top of a steep hill, they look at the fire-devastated area around them. Three ominous birds are flying in the smoke-darkened sky.

Free-Software Dealers is a tribute to Frank Frazetta and his famous Death Dealer. In Frazetta's painting, the warrior is a sort of messenger of Death on the battlefront. I kept the idea of the messenger; however, in my painting Tux and Gnu are messengers of Free Software (not death) on the digital front. -- Péhä
