The launch for Contact: Swancon 2009 was a couple of weeks ago and so the logo I designed (and all sorts of other info) is now no longer secret. In fact, the logo has been plastered on reports, websites, presentations and t-shirts! I've been really pleased with the positive feedback so far - someone's even asked for an electronic copy for their phone :-)
However, it's not been seen in colour yet, so I thought I'd post that here. This picture is a 50:50 picture. All of it was done in Illustrator, however half (the left) was done with a mouse only, while the other half (the right) was the first thing I drew with my new graphics tablet! The tablet is great - I've got a lot more control of what I'm drawing and so (in theory) everything is quicker. My style is definitely different using it, thought I *do* need to spend some more time practising in general and also using the nifty pressure features the pen comes with.
My next big task for Swancon 2009 is to make up some poster designs and they'll be in colour and so I'm looking forward to that. There's lots to look forward to, actually. We had a planning meeting yesterday and there's heaps of enthusiasm and good ideas (plus bananas!). I've got high hopes that it'll end up being a really great con :-)
(Was thinking of having a little competition to see who can work out what the logo is based on. But I think it's pretty obvious, right??)
