Alright, so I missed a day of the Daily Logo Challenge (and a day of Blogging as well). That wasn’t especially a big problem because these internet art challenges, like Inktober or Inkpril, do allow for people to “make up” for days missed.
There’s no hard rules, but people generally try to make up for lost days as soon as possible.
So I did that, but I went about it in what was probably the most lazy way possible (well, not the most lazy way possible, there are certainly lazier ways, but I haven’t fallen that deeply into the dark-side just yet).
I actually took a Logo I’ve already been working on a week ago and used that. See, I was designing a new logo for my own personal brand (the Justin C. Hsu or Justonky brand—it’s just me, though. The me brand).
For years now, I’ve been using the familiar Brain Logo:
But I felt it was time for something new, and had been sketching some ideas in my sketchbook, and even went ahead and designed several variants in Illustrator.
When it came time to make up for Day 15, I felt pretty tired about it as I had to make the Day 16 Logo on the same day as well. I was also exhausted that day for other reasons.
With midnight fast approaching, I decided to just post my new logo as Day 15— after all, I worked on it, didn’t I? I put in the effort, and it even had some hand lettering involved in it’s design process, exactly what the prompted called for!
Yeah, I was being lazy.
I wasn’t ashamed of it though; work was work.
