I have had quite a lot of home computer work to get done recently, which means that my procrastination time has been spent in obsessively re-checking favorite blogs for new posts, equally obsessively surfing around Etsy in hopes of new favorites, and creating useless things in Illustrator. And perhaps some not so useless, such as this colorful logo for my (procrastination-hobbled) freelance work:
Logos are fun, although quite a challenge. I realized exactly what a challenge they really are when a client once deferred to my professional knowledge, according me a highly trained expert's knowledge of what makes a logo really work, when in fact I am pretty much entirely self-trained in this respect and basically go with my gut instinct + a bit of common sense. I have a lot of respect for the highly trained professionals who understand the philosophy and the psychology behind a good logo. But I also like to make them myself and see what happens.
Since I probably should make an effort to accomplish the work for which I sat down here, I will leave you now. Happy Tuesday to all!
(p.s. There is a new doll just about ready to face the world. I just wasn't quite ready to have her in such close proximity to those darn Lenci treasures!)
