Hi Sebastian,
I am the maintainer  of the "classic" vector grok. I just entered  
today the maillist and dived through the threads of this month.  
Without knowing whats going on in the parallel cave, I independently  
came to the same conclusions on the troubles with the use of the  
wooly original pixel based drawings.

I am very interested to see your work, but http://www.urbantalk.se/ 
DEVELOPER/grok_3/ is down for me.

I am not sure if you have seen the latest flash version of my Grok.  
You can download it from

Download the file and drag&drop into a flash capable browser (for  
those others, not familiar with plain .swf files).
The scale up and down the window to see the resulting sizes. Under  
150 pixel height hand-optimization from the source file is useful.

This is very close to the original with some production related  
modifications. An optimisation for very small sizes is not done yet.  
As you know, cover-artwork differs from the daily strips in complexity!

This flash file is based on an original as a hierarchical structured  
Illustrator drawing, drawn with a pressure sensitive Wacom tablet. We  
have full control on line thickness and movement of parts (if the  
view-angle fits ;-)

Hope we have a successful exchange!
