Hoy hace 6 años que murió Aaron Swartz por la presión del Gobierno de EEUU. Él solo quería y luchaba por hacer el internet más libre. #AaronSwartz
You have a limited amount of time in this world. You decide whether to spend it being “neutral” (legitimising trillion-dollar surveillance capitalists) or working with those of us trying to raise awareness about their abuses so we can actually regulate them and get funding for ethical alternatives that don’t rely on them. If you’re doing the former don’t you dare criticise those doing the latter. We’re not the ones punching down and we don’t owe you an explanation for doing the right thing.

I need someone to draw simple flowers in vector graphics, ranging from completely dried/dead to healthy in 4-5 steps. I need black line art on blank background to better fit in the flat design of the app.
The fact this is for OSS doesn’t mean I want it for free. I have budget for the app, although not corporate sized.
The app is a water intake tracker/reminder. The flowers are to represent the hydration level of the user.
Boosts are also appreciated!
