Larry the Cow Embraces Freedom
Posted on June 30, 2011 by David Abbott

Larry the Cow

After years of "Larry the Cow" being identified with Gentoo and the Gentoo community, Larry has been traced to his creator, Ethan Dunham of Fonthead Design Inc.. Larry is a part of a bigger collection of Font Heads.

Following discussions with Ethan Dunham, involving Sebastian Pipping from the Gentoo Artwork Project and Roy Bamford, on behalf of the Gentoo Foundation, Fonthead Design Inc. has agreed to grant permission to use the artwork of letter "s" of font "Font Heads" showing the head of a cow under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 license so that the Gentoo community can enjoy the freedom to use their mascot.

We encourage our developers and users to create Gentoo artwork based on our newly released Larry.
