89-93 of 100 Blue Logos

Here is the last variation of the bowler hat blue logo. I then started looking at options with an elephant icon and finally created odd juxtapositions of ideas like a pineapple with blue.

Bow Tie Guy of the Week: The Barclayic Spider-Man!

Over the past few years, I have been working on re-imagining popular characters as if I had designed them. I have struggled with Spiderman and Bat Man a bit. After watching Into the Spiderverse last month, I was inspired to re-approach Spiderman again. I found a great solution in keeping his identity with the scarf. Now I need to tackle Bat Man again.

79-83 of 100 Blue Logos

Here are a few more variations. I am realizing that I could go well beyond 100 as ideas come to me faster. AS I am looking at them now, I am seeing even more possibilities.

At 82, I thought of switching from the idea of feeling blue to the positive idea of a bright blue sky. The shift to a warmer blue helped.

74-78 of 100 Blue Logos

Here I tried something different with the diamond. I was not happy with it. I then started playing with spacing between the letters (tracking) and then coming up with the idea of spelling blue backwards.

While working on these 100 something projects, I am constantly amazed at how long it takes me to come up with a simple variation like spelling the word backwards.

#59-63 of 100 Blue Logos and an announcement.

It took over half of the 100 logos before I submitted to putting a bow tie on the logo. I took inspiration from Number 58 to create a face with the “L.”

Also, over the past few months, I have been working on marketing for my illustration business. My work can now be seen on the Directory of Illustration. Over the next year there will be more to come.
