Planning a bar crawl / fun run between two bars called Victory. Hence "Victory Lap". The bars have a super great aesthetic - minimal, masculine, vintage gym homage, hints a tiny bit at a WWII/propoganda feel. They also serve Jack & Coke slushies!
Picked these 4 guys to digitize:
Here's my first go at them with a couple of variations:
With #1, there's a weird awkward space to the left of "Lap". No idea what to do there. The wings on #2 are really not working for me at all. I don't know why I can't make them work, but apparently I'm horrible at creating wings. With #3, I couldn't find a typeface I really liked for the copy under the pennant. I wanted some kind of hand-drawn metal face, so if anyone knows of something like that, please let me kow! #4 is my favorite so far - it's just working the best I think.
Texture!! (Colors are totally arbitrary - have not gotten to that point yet, just wanted to show the texture experiments.)
