Will Draw For Food

A blog friend is starting a new business teaching piano and asked if I'd like to give a shot at designing a logo for her website and business cards etc. because she likes my drawings on the blog. So instead of drawing Curmudgeophan I spent the day drawing pianos. Here's a couple ideas I sent off to her.

I like both of them.
I think the bench on the 2nd needs to go back to the carpenter; the legs look off :)

Hope to see more of this sort of thing for you if you enjoy it.

Nice! this is a good thing. May God always provide your daily bread and enough to keep the house going too. Getting harder (but not yet in dire straits) at my end on this but we must not despair... I love the song about the Cross... the lines about let all the nations tremble 'for God is with us'... so powerful.

Hi Elizabeth, Yeah, we've been through the financial crunch here for about a year and a half now. Construction is picking up a little but still spotty. I've sold some stuff on eBay (thank God I had it to sell). And I haven't lost any weight, so it can't be too bad... :)

I like the first one best.

I think you have the potential for a nice business post construction work.

Yeah, my Dad has work (he paints houses) but it is always unknown for the future; I really respect my Dad not only for his faith in Christ but that he has lived patiently like this for many years...

Yeah; I sold some of my protestant books when I was home in August to buy icons at the monastery in MI! :) Am hoping to sell more of my books... (and suprisingly it is no longer a big deal; of course the ones I want to sell are not my all time favourites or any of my Orthodox books for that matter!

I've been okay so far but have been w.o work for a year and a half now... may have to move which is a real bummer for me but as the Lord wills. We are so lucky here in North America...

I like the second drawing, it's very nostalgic, which is what parents think of when they sign their kids up for piano lessons. What a great outlet for your talent!

Elizabeth-2, Yes, even with the economy the way it is we are blessed above most people in the world. As hard as my work is, and as uncertain as it is, I'm grateful to be self employed and not sitting on the internet submitting resumes to anonymous people all day. If nothing else I can do what I did 35 years ago... push my lawn mower down the street and knock on doors. I really pity the people who can't think outside the box of their former job and salary.

Melanie, Thanks... that's what I was shooting for. Personally, I really like that drawing too for the same reason.

I love the one of the girl playing piano.

First one as a header.
Second one as Contact Link, "Go ahead and interrupt me." as a tag line.

When the pictures were downloading to my computer, the first one initially looked like a bumper sticker.

You know, Steve, you truly are talented at this. A gift.

Both are very good but I see more of your personal style in the second one (which, to me, makes it all the better!).

I hope you let us know which one your client picks.
