Theseus and the Minotaur

I have taken a couple classes on Skillshare but this is the first I've posted.  I was tasked with doing a program for my childrens play for Theseus and the Minotaur and thought that doing a logo for the cover could be a good way to go and keep it clean looking.   


I then started some sketching to see what I could come up with.  Ironically what I thought I would do really changed by the end.  I wanted to incoporate some of the look of the actual Minotaur in the final logo.  I zeroed in on the horns and the nostrils. 


The final sketch that I liked is in the bottom left hand corner.  I chose to take my hand drawing info AI and use image trace verse just use it to create the outline to drop my points.  I wanted to keep more of a hand lettered feel.  I seperated the two in my sketches so I could then lay them over each other in AI.  I did have to manually adjust more points than if I have simply drawn the points from the sketch.  


I was inspired by the video in two do the 2 colors in the T.  I actually finished the logo and the program before I finished the last part of this class because I was in a time crunch.  I wish I had though. I just hadn't done the last 5 minutes or so.  If I had I would have added some shading on the T where the M sits on top. I also considered added some hand done texture but alas it didn't happen.  

The class inspired me to get this project done and I was really proud of the outcome.  Also a great tip was using the paper with the dot grid.  I got some of that on Amazon and used it for my next project.  very helpful.  

Thank you Will.
