Once again, this is really great.
As an avid absinthe enthusiast (I actually know a tremendous amount about absinthe%3B some might call it an obsession), I feel like stylistically, this mark is on point. However, I'm really confused by the color choice. Even the most abecedarian absinthe drinker would tell you that the color most associated with absinthe is green. La F%E9e Verte, The Green Fairy. There are some things you just don't take artistic liberty with, and I feel like the color of an absinthe logo is one of them. And yes, I know, the best absinthes being produced are actually clandetine La Bleus, which are actually clear (they don't run their distillate through a coloring phase with green herbs), but most, if not all people naturally associate absinthe with the color green.
At any rate, I floated this because I think the lockup as a whole is MF-ing phenomenal.
Floris, this is just great, balanced, interesting and fantastic.
Thank you all!**@Jon: Cool to hear man. I know green is the colour that is associated with absinthe. But this is for something totally different, not for actual absinthe. I chose the name because people also link it with hallucinating, as a metaphor (Van Gogh is rumoured to have had some when cuttting of his ear), so I wanted the colour to stick to that theme too. From that point of view green just seems too obvious.
colour not final though, might throw in some green %3B)
%5E Green blue combo would be more absinthe-ish %3B)
Fresh, great style, love the gradient too.
Lovely line work! love the a b ligature.
Thanks for the kind words
I really like what you've done here, Floris. These thin intricate strokes with this gradient are killer.
Really love this a lot, great job on this all around, Floris!
Thanks Sean, Gracias Chris.
Lovely style, well done
Yummie - love it.
Thanks so much guys!
really like this one. such clean line work.
I think the color is accurate. I instantly related with the flashy hallucinogenic look, though green is it's main, this is really suitable!
Thanks lads! I'm now emotionally preparing for this one to leave the front page... :D
Ooo...this is really stunning!
Excellent! That gradient.. uff..

I love line work! Wish I could do it as well as you did here. Bravo!
Thank you Milena :)
