GNU and Freedo

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