For people who know me or who have been following the blog for a while… you know my professional background is in Technical Writing and Illustration. I also have been a forum moderator at the DBSTalk Web site for many years now. As part of some recent logo redesign for that Web site I wanted to recreate the previous logo design as closely as I could to have a baseline for comparison purposes. I needed to do this because the original high-resolution source was lost and I did not create that previous design.
Long-story short, the previous Web site logo design for DBSTalk used a Dish Network Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) dish as a cornerstone around which the rest of the logo was created. Before working on any actual logo work, I first created this vector illustration of a Dish Network 1000.4 DBS rooftop dish assembly.
Even though I didn’t end up using this in the new logo redesign, I was pretty proud at how this turned out. I may even upgrade the satellite dish on the ‘Sects cave-teepee at some point just to see if anyone notices! 🙂

That’s it. What were you expecting? Some kind of Peach-Pear Pineapple-Pen parody? 😉
For those who remember the apple I drew back in July… and then used in my ‘Sects comic strip… last month I added a peach and a pear for some really bad puns in my regular comic strip. If you follow the strip, you’ve already seen small versions of these.
As much as I like the peach… I really feel like I nailed the pear. I like the pear better than my apple I think, and I really liked that apple. The leaf especially on the pear, I’m particularly proud of that.
