I love to sketch. I really do. But lately I've been a little tired of doodling such silly, cartoony doodles...I needed to shake things up. So yesterday I decided to do my "drawing" on my computer in Illustrator and it feels refreshing to have a different kind of artwork to show for myself. It was inspired by the thought of a family crest and it made me think that if I had my own personal crest, it would have to be very mountainy. Because my life is very mountain-centric. And I like nature. Once I was finished, I got excited for a moment thinking I had just created a symbol that could double as a Captain Planet logo...until I realized it's not four different elements - it's Earth, Water, Earth, and Earth again. And yes, I know there are five different Captain Planet team members, but I always thought "Heart" was a bit of a stretch. Right, Planeteers? Anyway, I also designed a monochromatic version that I might like even more than the first version. Some day I will make a shirt with this on it, and I will pretend I'm a Planeteer.
