Ugh, I missed my blog post last week. Yuk. What's up with that? The holiday just threw me off so much. One little difference and I'm lost and off my schedule. I seriously missed a bunch of things last weeks. Oh well, it is what it is. The only thing I can do is hold my head high and get back on the (blogging) horse.
So let's just get into it!
I've been working on a new updated logo. It's actually something I've been working on for a very long time. A few years. I have a friend that is a graphic designer and we've been working together on something I like. Well I think I might finally have something I'm happy with.
I'm still not sure about the font, but it's growing on me. I still might change it up a little bit. I also am thinking about adding some beads. Maybe a strand of beads or something like that. It's a work in progress.
It is based on a photo I took of a fox skull from my collection. I made a bunch of different sketches from different angels, trying to find something I like. The hubs liked the side view, but I wasn't sold. I tried this angel, and I liked it, but there was something missing. That's where the ears came in. The idea came from a plastic skeleton of a rat we have in the lab. It has ears, not sure why, but it does. Even though it doesn't make sense for a skeleton to have ears, I liked it. So I tried some big fox years and was smitten. I instantly knew this was what I've wanted.
But it needed something else. Something pretty. Enter the flowers. I tried all different types of flowers. Daisies, roses, violets, etc. But the poppies had my heart. The pop of red poppies make me so happy. It's beautiful.
I'm pretty happy with it. Like I said, I'll probably be tweaking it here and there. But overall it's finally finished. Finally after years of working on it. It feels so good to have something I'm happy with.
