I stumbled across an old 45rpm record adapter last year and really liked the look of it, so I drew a clean vector version of it to use as a social network site avatar. When I launched this blog, I decided to use it as my WordPress avatar as well.
For my “From Where I Sit” comic strip I wanted something very simple as a logo design. The comic strip itself is based on a concept of always being drawn from the perspective of where the primary character is sitting. The story is told more via the text than the illustrations, with the art being there most of the time just to establish the setting. It’s a very subtle logo design composed entirely of text but with the letters in the word sit arranged to form a chair. I think it works well and suits the tone of this comic strip.
My “Fringe Kisses” comic strip is a different concept entirely. It’s a single panel comic strip intended to be as strange as the idea that hits me in any given moment, and it is imminently more visual in how it communicates the story. The name of the strip originates from the concept of being right at and barely touching the edge (kissing the fringe), and I liked the play on words of using fringe instead of french. For this comic strip I wanted a more striking logo design that jumps out at you a bit, hence the design of a pursed-lips kiss with the comic strip title in stylized lettering embedded within.
