This shirt is great! If it is possible please post your original Blender and Gimp files because I would love to wear this shirt when presenting and promoting OpenStreetMap project. User:ValentTurkovic

My concept: In germany the cardinal directions "Nord", "Ost", "Süd", "West" are abbreviated to "N", "O", "S", "W". On a compass the "N" is often replaced by an arrow, so you've left "O", "S" and "W", the "W" can be seen as a flipped "M", ... OSM Kompass windrose a .jpg or OSM Kompass windrose b .jpg

but it looks much better when the "W" is replaced by "M"

My implementation: I've modeled a compass in Blender v2.46

and after applying GIMP's "edge-detection" filter I've got this first draft:

The cool thing is that the arrow points to the web address ;-)
