I have gone for an Astec calendar. From what googling I have done, it is not the same as the Mayan calendar, so not quite a 2012 thing. It is, however, a very intricate image.
On the lid, obviously, I have to make space for the apple logo, so I have put the face from the centre of the original on the back instead.
Overall, pretty distinctive. If anyone wants a MacBook Pro engraved, we would charge around £25+VAT for this type of job. It is a one off, like a tattoo, but thankfully you can always get a new laptop if you change your mind in the future.

OK, owning up, the apple leaf touches the artwork because the apple logo is set for a 2mm clearance using "join" and "cap" logic on svg/postscript set to "butt" not "round". The issue is inkscape showed as mitre/square unless you zoomed in so I did not realise. Next time join and cap will be set to "round" and all will be well.ReplyDelete
Oh Shiny indeed, Now I just need to find a decent dragon image that would engrave nicely... Any ideas on that one?ReplyDelete
Finding the artwork is the most difficult bit.Delete
Try the image site for a good vector one, not free but good quality.Delete
For example http://www.bigstockphoto.com/search/dragon/?q[ill]=only
Roughly 37 pages at 100-150/page of vector dragon graph, price are <£10.
Sadly the ones I liked were tattoo sketches which I don't think were vector based :-(Delete
