I Can See Clearly Now

Here is the finished logo that I completed this week after showing off the original art for it yesterday.

I told you yesterday that I had illustrated this same character about ten years ago for the same client and, after seeing what he looked like back then, I decided it was time for a little upgrade. The client requested if I could put a paint brush in this guy's back pocket so that gave me the perfect opportunity to redo him. I figured if I needed to add something to the original figure why not just do him all over again and make him look better.

I also added a rag in his other back pocket as well. You can see how it had to be modified and shortened from the original illustration to fit into the logo design. But, I think it worked out well.

And here is the original figure I did along with a basic layout of what the client was thinking of for the new logo. I really like the idea of the guy washing off a bit of grime right in the logo and it really sells what his business is in a nice and clear way. So, I just tried to mimic what he wanted in the logo and give it a little more flash.

It was really a great idea on his part and it made my job that much easier when getting the finished piece done. And, because we were on the same page, I got this done really quick and out the door.

And now it's on to the next project!

Have a great day!

Awesome Sean, being a painting contrator myself I can appreciate how cool this is even a little bit more. Nice work man, I know your client must be really happy with the results!

Are all the stop motion animation guys out there painters? Is it like a secret club? If I start doing stop motion animation will I want to paint too? Or are all painting contractors secretly home at night working on little stop motion films?

I sense a conspiracy!

Thanks, Mike :)
