Description: A WIP logo design for a good friend of mine who is also a client and affiliate. Jose does Web design. Jose is always complimenting me yet never said anything about his talent. I asked to see some of his work and he sent me this http://twitpic.com/ommta WOW! He did this at age 16. I can say this. This guy is so modest, so I will brag for him. Logo is a WIP.. and the guy deserves the best, but after seeing his work ummm..wow.

@absoludicrous, I agree many of those.*@ Momentum, thanks I'll try knockin of right side serif. for an option but never seen a J faced that way anyhow. The middle is a subtle pencil.

I thought I was good at pencil drawing! WOW! Logo is just as great in my opinion. Good job, love the mark.

Thanks Gafyn, I really appreciate that but hard to say just as great. I agree I thought I was good with a pencil too, but he nailed it right down to the wrinkles on the lip,under the eye,skin tones,pours,lighting. I have seen a LOT of pencil drawings but this one is out of this world IMO . He captured the lighting and moment. I have looked at this for 2 days now. I'm still in awe.

Going strictly by that one portrait, and not knowing the profile of Jose's other work - isn't the mark somewhat too precise and formal for someone who can draw a portrait like that one ? E.g. imagine it at the bottom-right corner of the portrait instead of whatever it is there now. Do you see what I mean ?

That's not to say the mark itself is not good. It is. And the pencil tip is a nice touch.

%5EThis is so True. Yet that is the point I was trying to get across with my comment. He is now ONLY doing Web design now,.. and art is his hobby, therefore the hint of pencil. His focus is more towards Web site design now. I think he should get back into drawing myself though.

%3E he should get back into drawing**As harsh as it may sound I'm guessing there's simply no money in it. I do agree with you though completely. That is an amazing talent.

That's an extremely talented soul right there. Mike, now you know how the majority of us feel every time you pump out another masterpiece. I think that really talented people never actually consider themselves talented.It sucks when a skill like that gets shelved.**

Thanks guys, Yeah Chad, a great guy too... The man behind my new website design..:)). We have a better %22Mendoza%22 logo now and not to mention this is probably too close to ArtMachine's personal logo anyhow now that I think about it.
