Update 5/18/13

so i've refined my sketches from the previous ones below. the flourishes on the top still need a bit of work - i think they will be much thinner then shown in the sketch.  Please let me know what you think.

Which of these concepts do you like better? or should i do both?

AB13

I'm designing a logo, for my website or business card.  It includes my initials (AB) plus the #13 which has significance becuase (1) it's the year i'm refreshing my portfolio and (2) becuase 13 is a sinister and dramatic number. :-)

Ritual de lo Habitual

I like the meaning of this phrase as something you do habitually but it's also the title of one of my favorite Jane's Addiction albums.  I thought the letters would look beautiful in cursive.

Dia de los Muertos

Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated in Mexico that honors the dead.  I like how theatrical it is and thought I might do a sketch for this, but I dont have one uploaded yet. but it could be cool, and incorporate illustrated ghouls and skulls.
