Art - Week 01

I'm going to do something a little different with my art features this year.  Instead of doing it weekly, I'm going to do it every other week.  And instead of posting sketches (I'll be putting those on my tumblr instead), I'm going to post "finished" things.  So that'll force me to finish at least 26 creative projects this year, be they drawings or paintings or - like today's art - logos.

Phylactery Games

That's right - today I have the pleasure of sharing with you the logo I've made for a good friend's up and coming gaming store.  He's been talking about opening a game shop for literally as long as I've been friends with him (which is going on 11 years now), so it's really exciting to see him taking giant steps towards living his dream.  Let it be an inspiration to us all.

This was exciting to draw because it was way outside my comfort zone.  I do not like drawing straight lines (the box) or hand or ugly, gnarled things (the lich arm).  But the more I drew them, the better I felt about them.  The only thing I'm not completely happy with is the ethereal squiggle arm, but my "client" has assured me it is fine.  I still might end up fixing it before I give it to him for good.
