    legg: I find that sort of thing so unclassy, the "hey i'm the [insert classy item] of [insert profession]" it really screams unprofessional to me
    If I were you, I'd try a few other approaches for designing your identity.

    Not to mention that kind of hubris is bound to leave a negative first impression. Your work itself should show that you are the Grange of design, not the slogan.

    Now if somebody of importance were actually quoted as dubbing you the Grange of design, that would be a different story

    His mom could say it. But dont say it was a quote from your mom. Just put quotations around it.

    I honestly think that even somebody who is super-advanced, at a high professional level...shouldn't say something like that.

    It doesn't come off well in any case, I feel.

    [edit] unless somebody else calls you that, right.

    Thanks for the comments guys. The orange splotches didnt work out as i wanted but I guess i chose to leave them in. I like the type layout that you suggested to. Allot cleaner.

    Also- I think the word 'grange' is fine because its seen as 'best' in a few industries eg cars etc. It just means top of the line. The whole concept was just to give it ago, Design isnt my strong point and I've always wanted to learn more layout skills. I dont really have a problem with the quote. Its just something I threw in there to see what it looked like after I did the graphics *shrugs* its only a 20 minute doodle thingy

    Anyone have any good texts on typography?

    I drew a thing! A friend of mine and I were going to go on a zombie bar crawl this weekend, but he's not good at zombie makeup, so I said I'd paint on some bite marks once he got there. He thought it would be kind of cute if I gave him the bite marks, and I told him I would only bite him a little bit. Then we got to thinking about how cute Zombie Lexxy nibbles would be, so I drew it.

    Plans have changed and we're doing something else now, but the drawing is still yay!

    edit:

    This is exactly why the rest of us are discouraging you from using it. Why would you imply that you're the best or top of the line at something when you yourself recognize it isn't your strength? It's egotistical. It makes people who aren't that good at what they're professing to be good at look delusional, and it makes people who ARE good at it look like pompus asshats.

    Not saying that I think you're full of yourself, just saying that's what using that kind of language implies.

    My Amazing Professor apparently had a wife once, and had a daughter with her.......

    ...apparently years ago, she said something to the effect of "it's either the art, or me" to him.....and I guess he chose the art.

    Mes3: I really dig that Stained Glass/Salior Jerry feel going on, but yea, some things are out of place: The tree limb seems to come out of nowhere, and the rose up top is creeping pretty close to the hourglass. I get the ying/yang concept and your style is tight.

    I know the actual Ying Yang design is overused, but it is a classic for a reason. Variations on that theme in terms of the use of negitave space are great, as in The Great Wave off Kanagawa. I don't know if my ramblings are helpful, but I am really looking forward to where you go from this...

    Yeah, I mean....honestly? I would've made the same choice.

    I can understand the whole "you're spending a lot of time in your studio, and not with me instead" argument...but at the same time, I think it has to be understood that if you're with an artist, you're going to have to allow them to have their "art time"...which in the vast majority of cases, probably does not include the you. I guess she just felt that he was spending too much time on his art.

    For this guy especially, though, art is his life...so her ultimatum was a pretty ridiculous one...though it would be a silly one to make for most artists, I assume.

    I don't know how I feel about making MUCH bigger, but I could actually stylize the script and have it spill outside the banner (if you know what I saying). By loosening up the roses, do you mean making em more free flowing? If so, I think you may be right!

    Yeah, I think your right about having the script spill over the banner (at least the first letter). For the rose I meant less petals and just looser flowing lines.
