This is a logo I created for an old friend of mine from elementary and Jr. High. I hadn't spoken to my friend Jackie since Jr. High and one day she found me on MySpace. After getting reacquainted she asked for my help. Jackie explained that she was diagnosed with MS a few years ago and was now starting a nonprofit organization to help educate people with MS, specifically Latinos with MS. She knew that I had gone to school for animation and asked if I could create a logo for her organization. She knew she wanted a "cartoony, but girly" iguana with long lashes and Betty Boop lips, specific colors & the acronym S.A.M.S, but the rest was up to me. I had about two weeks total to come up with an idea and final logo. The following is the result of Jackie's request.
After several horrible drawings, Jim had to do the initial sketch. I learned very quickly that iguanas are not my thing. Especially "girly" iguanas.
And then I finalized everything
Jackie loved the final result and if all goes well, we'll be working together again on brochures, coloring books and other literature for people with MS and their families.
