  1. I do PCB artwork on all my designs too:

    I draw it all in Eagle by hand. That way you don’t get any errors but there are some limitations on what you can draw. There is also no way to re-size stuff in Eagle.

    I use the silkscreen layer for my artwork. It usually comes out pretty well. I have recently been experimenting with multiple colour images by using the silkscreen (white), pad (silver) and PCB (choice of colour) layers. You can actually get two shades out of the PCB layer because areas with traces tend to be a bit lighter than areas with all the copper removed.

  2. Cool, nicely done.

    Reminded me of an LPC flash emulator I saved from the recycle bin at work; I opened it up trying to sort out what it was and found a picture of Jimi Hendrix on the PCB silkscreen.
