Arkham Ghost Busters

A logo commission I illustrated for Arkham Ghost Busters!

About once a year I have to dust off my copy of Illustrator to make a vector image, and this logo was my annual prompt. Working in vectors is a bit of a challenge for me, since I work so linearly and Illustrator requires you work with shapes— it’s like, Photoshop is the same as drawing with a pen. You move your hand and a line follows. Illustrator is like when you go to a fancy restaurant and the waiter pours some balsamic vinegar into a little dish of olive oil, and then you take your fork and move the vinegar around to force those dark blobs to separate or join together. It’s playing with shapes that are following their own rules. A real challenge for me to wrap my brain around!
