True King Logo
I was asked to create this logo for a local clothing and lifestyle company. The goal was to create something elegant but masculine, with a handmade feel. My client had wanted the logo to be a lion wearing an Egyptian nemes. After coming up with a few different sketches we had decided a side profile would be the most appropriate. It works because it highlights the dramatic shape of the lion while allowing the mane to flow with the shape of the headcloth. Its also a subtle nod to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. Like most illustrations I do it was first done in pen and ink, and then scanned into the computer to be colored. I then separated the colors and prepped the image for the screen printing process.
