This strip appeared in issue #14 of Linux Voice magazine. We were told that this edition would include an article about creating images using hand-coded SVG, hence this strip. When the magazine was released, however, it turned out that the article was about creating images using the SVG-edit application. To keep with the theme, this strip was created entirely as an SVG image, with no bitmap components (albeit using Inkscape, rather than hand-coded).
