Change is Good: Part Two

Some of the great comments from folk's sharing critique, thoughts and ideas about my planned logo change mentioned keeping the fun and personality of the one now. Thinking about it has lead me back to an old illustration and design I created as a business card and used 10 years ago. I just might revisit this idea and update. Maybe. We'll see. Gears in my head still spinning.

The card front was an homage to late 70's and early 80's Marvel Comics I grew up reading. The card back was my resume, but as if a Johnson Smith Company mail order ad from the era. Click on images to enlarge.

  3. Thanks, good catch. Plenty of typos to find in there too. The problem with that one is, it was not just typo but stupidity having the wrong name in my head when writing. A mistake I often do.

  4. Hmmm, I think that it is an improvement on your previous ideas, but the thing I love best about your current logo is its uniqueness (is that even a word?. Honestly I didn't even realize it was an Indiana Jones reference (Indiana Jones is mostly before my time honestly) But I've always loved your current logo in the way the character looks to be attacking art and being attacked by it as well as the detail and sketchiness. It's not LIKE anything else out there which unfortunately the whole 'front of a comic book page' kinda is. In my honest opinion I feel that something like a mad scientist crossed with an artist surrounded by bizarre and unique characters would be a good representation of your work. You are so good at creating unique characters (like Mrs Scaryweather, viking goblin thingys etc) I think you should use some of those original characters to represent yourself.

  6. I spent way too much time reading every detail of your resume...very creative..brought back a lot of memories, not only of comic books but I also used to spend hours in 7th grade study hall browsing the pages of the Edmund Scientific catalog ...seeing what goodies I could spend my hard earned paper route money on. Very creative, very cool.
