i love this mark! im curious though for the face is it also vector based? it looks so natural. perhaps a gradient mesh? please do tell. :)

5/5 amazing execution!

Thanks emesghali. It is totally vector (including the face). The whole thing has been constructed in illustrator. I just built the face with different shapes and gradually added highlights and shadows. I avoided using gradients.

Thanks RaitG and Oznacar. Surprised to find it on the homepage this morning. I'm hoping it's going to find a new home in January as a barber is interested in buying it, we shall see...

Colin - No it's not a self portrait! I found a vintage portrait online. I don't know if on some weird sub-conscious level I've made it look a bit like me. My wife asked the same question but I'm not into self-portraits! I need to create my own logo over Christmas so I can get rid of the mugshot.

very nice work., I thought this was gallerized long time ago cause I sure as hell floated it. Weird.
