Have I ever been away. Didn't realize I hadn't posted anything in forever until I blanked on my login for the site.
So I've been a little distracted by the day job, new responsibilities and a couple of home improvement projects that got WAAAAAAAAY out of hand. In between meltdowns, I did manage to put this together for a Funko collecting buddy down in 'Tejas'.
The original request was to have 'comic characters in the background'. I did some rough designs, got an enthusiastic 'yes' on one of my designs and went ahead with developing this one. I decided on the vintage postcard look because I like it, and it allowed me to used comic characters without being 'too much'. I spent an entire afternoon tracking down character images that were: done by the original creators, worked in the letters, and high resolution enough to not pixelate in the final design. That done, it was a simple matter of recreating the postcard look. The font is a little too modern, but overall, I'm very happy with the final product.
Oh, and because I sort of confused what was meant by 'the first one'. This is not the logo for the convention. That would be this....
