This is a logo I made for my friend Hank Yates’s music project, Mousy Magazine. He wanted a logo that recalled the patches and emblems from space missions of yore. I was happy to help him achieve this look. After studying the shape, color, and design of these patches, we landed on a design that he liked. I think it worked out well.
Recent scribbles from the sketchbook: legs, hips, torsos, and a couple of dudes.
I’m late to Inktober due to some crunch time at work, but I’ll be getting in the saddle today. In the meantime, here’s a sketch next to some notes about logo design:
I’ve recently rediscovered that I have several Staedtler non-photo blue pencils. These guys are great for beginning your drawing and creating construction lines. After that, I don’t have any particular preference with pencils, although I tend to like harder graphite as opposed to soft. Less smearing. I do have a Pentel .5mm mechanical pencil, but traditional pencils work just fine, too. Eraser pens are a must when working with graphite.
