As a novice to journeyman letterer, I’ve gained a new found respect for logo design.

My first real attempt at creating an iconic trademark was during a failed attempt to raise (in my best Dr. Evil voice) 100 million dollars during a kickstarter campaign.  I was also an amateur marketer (that’s being kind) back then as well and wanted to try my hand at making my own logo.  After having a conversation with my partner, Mervyn I realized we wanted something that was sort of resembled a rubber stamp of disapproval.  Running with the idea, I came up with The first version for The C-List (our vervious title).

After the failed kickstarter, we went back to the drawing board and decided to rename the series, The C-Listers.  We kept the same idea for the premise and now have the version that you all have been inundated with today.

Stay Classy,

I’d like to sincerely apologize for my absence. I’ll put up some fresh content for you guys very soon.

I would like to thank those who checked in on Monday and want to ask what might you be interested in getting out of this that may not have been mentioned up top. I’ll probably talk about the production process next post.

Stay Classy,

Jon

As many creative team knows, one of the best parts about the making comics is going to shows and talking to people about them.  Mervyn will be in attendance at Supercon this year and should have plenty of copies of issues 1-3.  He’ll also be doing commission of anything your mind can come up with.  Wish I was hitting Miami this year, but sadly I won’t be in attendance.
