New Logo for Monkey-Cats Studio

I'm getting ready to have a few things printed for the studio and I felt I needed something new for the printing. As most of you know, my two long tailed cats are the inspiration for the name of my studio. We have called them the Monkey-Cats since they were just little guys because their bodies never grew proportional to the length of their tails. This is one of several images I came up with after I spilled a diet coke on the last nearly completed painting.


I've played around here with a couple of ideas for the studio's new stickers that I need to talk to a blogging friend about, plus I know I'm not a graphic designer, don't pretend to be, so I am going to be sending some of my figure images out to be made into cards along with these two silly faces to hopefully be incorporated in the design some way.

Just wanted to show you I'm not being a slacker!! I really am trying to get some things done.

Wow, can you believe July is almost over?!!! Where is our summer going and will I get everything done for Halloween and Vine by September 26? I see late nights in my future!

Have a great day everyone!!
Laurie

Well thank you all...this is all the same image, just cropped differently on flickr by me so these three images cost me zippo, just my play time to see if I could come up with something to send to the designer as a logo.

I am working with someone to do the layout for the cards because they are a fabulous graphic person, and I want to work with another someone to do my stickers or tags.

I'll let them decide what to do. They are both so much better at these things!!

The cats are done in figures Jorge...you will see them in September. Goofy little fellows and the funny thing is, our cats do smile...honestly. I call Elwood the comedian in the household. Pure joy those two monkey-cats!!!

Thank you Linda, Robert, Tammy, Sonia, Sweet William, Flora and Jorge.

I'm one whipped puppy so I'm going to bed now but I will show you what I worked on today...sneak peek!!

Goodnight!
Laurie

Slacker? if you are a slacker then I must be dead! LOL
OMG Laurie these are so adorable! I love it as with all your work but truly speaks of your art, style and you. Perfect. Sorry you lost the other painting to the coke. Must have been a reason for it.
I wish I could paint/draw something. Maybe I will have to hunt someone down someday.
Have a wonderful week.
Hugs,Pea
