Illustration Friday: Captain

This was not my first concept. Actually, I was blank on this. A lot of obvious ideas popped up and they all, in a word, sucked. So I asked my wife to help and we brainstormed through some captains. The first sketch of that session is here.

She thought that sketch might be a bit to risque for IFriday. Soooo--I suppose since we were sitting in a Starbucks I thought about a logo for a fictious coffee shop named Captain's Coffee and this weeks entry was born.

This piece was done in Abobe Illustrator CS.

As always, your comments are encouraged and welcome.

Skecth of the Captain

Or, "How the Captain Got His Name"

This was the initial sketch for Captain on IFriday. My wife and I were sitting in the Starbucks at Towne Center whilst our teens were wandering around with their friends. She was helping brainstorm for the entry and she mentioned the Captain and Tennille, an adult contemporary band from the 70s. This idea sprung to mind and I sketched in out in about 5 minutes.

After much debate I decided to go with the logo concept above, but couldn't resist sharing this as well.
