While we prepare the next post, we thought you might enjoy a light interlude of some more recent sketches. Click the images for their full-size versions.

General rough ideas.

Among other things, a study of the primary shapes that make up the coat of arms on our passports.

Drawn on the plane on the way home from Barcelona, a study of our hotel’s coat of arms, a strangely Roger Dean-esque idea of my own, and a prawn with ‘rark’, a fictional affliction that seems to befall many of the characters in my sketchbook. But that’s another story!

General rough ideas.

Some more studies (on the right) of other logos’ flourishes

I went to Spain on the lookout for insignia, and would you believe it: the hotel we stayed at had one! Stupidly, I managed to completely miss it until we were leaving and only managed to grab this card second before we headed out the door…

  1. Elliot, Those are some great sketch ideas. Can’t wait to see what progress you’ve made. I really like where you’re going with the coat-of-arms below your hotels study. Keep it up!

  2. Absolutely! It’s their best dish! 😉

  3. So is the rark paella a specialty of the Catalans?

  4. Something I should add: we’ve progressed a lot further since these sketches were done, so don’t worry about telling us to ditch the coat-of-arms idea or anything! 😉 I thought you might just like to see some more of the processes we went through before the idea became more fully developed.
