my logo

So just fyi, and for me... but this fishy thing is my logo. It's an A and an M which are my initials but stacked so that it looks like a fish. So yeah I put it on all my stuff so I know its mine and it's a fish cause I'm a Pisces. OK.

Update: This design was originally going to look more like the artist Albrecht Durer's signature, but after turning the page sideways to draw more I realized that it kind of looked like an angelfish. I have always been a big fan of fish and aquariums so it seemed kind of natural to have my signature reflect some of my interests. The Pisces thing only helped solidify it in my mind. This logo has gone through a few changes, primarily being simplified, but of late the M has changed to an S to reflect my married name.

More Lin

Hell again and welcome to the encore of Lin Kohaku. She was only a head before and now. Now she is whole. I'm working on a color version in Photoshop, but here is the black and white line art. I drew her today at work in pencil on vellum paper which is lovely for drawing btw. So yes, that's all.
