Portfolio Showcase: Logo-motive Train

Wow, a week already! Ok, so I'm on schedule, at least this week! Here's Friday's Portfolio Showcase:

This piece was a logo illustration I drew for a local client. It was used as a logo for a new housing development. I'm not sure what the connection was to trains, but I'm guessing the site was probably railroad-related in some way. Anyway, it's one I hadn't posted here before, so I thought it might be nice to show it. If you're wondering, the train was drawn in pen and ink, with a little brushwork here and there. Although I drew this around 5" x 7", it was used primarily on letterhead, about an inch or so high! That's small!

Speaking of logos, here's a little bonus for today: I had to create a logo for the t-shirt one of the characters is wearing in our new Roboy Red story. The little girl in the story is something of a drama queen, so I came up with this:

I'm thinking of having some t-shirts made with the logo, so if you're out there thinking, boy, I (or my wife, girlfriend, etc) might like to have this, please let me know in the comments. I'm trying to decide if it's feasible to do it. And just so you'll know what it might look like on a shirt (if you looked like a comic book character, that is!) here it is in context, on the girl's shirt:

Pencils by John Gallagher, inks and colors by me. I'll be posting some actual pages from the story soon.

Have a nice weekend!

Thanks, Keelan! I'm glad you like it. I'm actually in the process of having t-shirts printed now. I'll have them in adult and kids' sizes, and they will be purple shirts. If anyone sees this, and wants to order, I'll soon have an announcement about how to do that. Watch this space!
