Go Inkscape!! Love that thing! *tries to squeeze Inkscape software and fails. 'Cos it's well _software_, duh!* Like the drawing, it's hard to do realistic stuff with vectors. For me it's hard to do even completely not-realistic stuff >.<;; the face on my avatar was made with Inkscape and a notebook pad (no mouse here T-T)
I know how you feel there. I discovered the announcement that our main man Bryce was giving a presentation about Inkscape at Portland State University just days after I had visited the campus. I was so bummed.

The font is the previously "official" branding font for use with the Inkscape logo. Unfortunately, after posting this screen, I discovered it was nonfree. Back when I snarfed it, I recall it was a link to a site with the ttf listed on it -- however sometime since it seems that it was discovered that this was a commercial font, and the links were updated to their commercial ($25) offering.
