As promised. Slowly getting more legit...

So on the last post, I said the logo was close to being done. And it is! I have to give BIG props to Doug Allan, a long time friend for putting this together for me. I think its turned out fantastic. Classy, classic, and timeless. I think its got staying power. What say the masses?

Without further ado:



Nothing much else to add, other than there has been progress with the bank - so there is still hope!

No riding lately. But I should be skiing! The snow around here is perfect for laying down some tracks and falling down a bit. I'll probably get out this weekend.

Listening to: NPR news. Just heard the Republicans debate in over in IA. Are all politicians so smarmy? - Thats rhetorical, btw...

Looks good. IMHO, it would work better without the illustration next to it. Or perhaps with the illustration as a background behind the name. Right now it appears as four art elements. Combine a few and it's less busy.

Best of luck.

Looks good Martini. You are living my dream. Best part of the country and shop owner. I hope it rolls into something big!

I think it looks great, I like the sunset feel to the illustration, makes me wish I had a beer in hand sitting and watching the sunset before heading home. Nice job.

Marty, it works well I think for the feel of the building you are working with, the area, and the whole vibe of Prairie. Good stuff.

Very nice. I like that a lot. You've got a couple elements there that work together (IMO) and will also work separate. I can see a t-shirt with the bike in the field on the back and "The Prairie Peddler" small on the front.

You've always had great design sense, Marty. I concur with what Black Mountain said about soft goods screened with your artwork. See you at CMBS on the 12th in Mad Town?

The wheat tops look like handlebars. Is that intentional?

Nice logo/graphic. Very nice.
