Yet another commemorative logo is up on the Google home page today. This one is to remember Diego Velázquez's birthday, which was on June 6, 1599. Velázquez was a Spanish painter who was the leading artist in the court of King Philip IV.

Here is the logo: Diego Velázquez Google Logo

Honestly, I don't personally see the search or 'tech' angle to showing a logo for a historic Spanish painter. But at the same time, I am not one to have "art appreciation."

Which leads me to my question. Is Google a bit too trigger happy on special logos?
