Good one... And you can even draw it in one line (in one draw)... Beautiful!

Hi Kwaku - Dache's bull is a great mark (although no surprises there), I was aware of it prior to creating this work although I certainly wasn't consciously referencing it to create the alpaca.*The basis for the illustration was more to create the alpaca from a single continuous stroke in one movement (as type08 noticed) but I definitely wasn't claiming to have pioneered this illustrative style. Felix sockwell and von glitschka both have some great work in this style and I think you will find there are quite a few examples of continuous line-work animals right here on the pond.. (http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/7148).. (http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/24667) *Precedents aside I think the fact that my work describes a different animal and will be used for products made exclusively from this material makes it unique enough to be distinctive/memorable. This style also suited the requirements for the mark very well.. works great in single colour.. reduces well to care label size etc.. plus I am a huge fan of minimalist line drawings so this was a nice challenge and great fun.

Add Picasso, no one can claim this style. You did a fine job man. :)

s7even - please don't take it as an attack. I just pay your attention at some points. As I said before logo is really good , great visual look and for sure it is memorable. But I kinda can't fully agree with you. The examples you showed me they're certainly based on the same idea, but more constructed and the thickness of the line is quite smaller. Looks at dache's work (http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/20815) and you will see the execution of your mark is nearer to his design. Even , if David didn't draw it in one line.
