Robert’s Home Services

Had a great neighbor who ran a home repair/contracted services business but didn’t have a decent logo.   I was still homing my Illustrator skills so I offered to give him a visual he could use for his company.  He had no ideas and I was just coming off this art nouveau overdose (Mucha) so I said, “let me run with it”.  I’m sure I literally said that ’cause that’s the kinda guy I am.  anyway, this is what I sketched up:

Work in progress screenshots using Adobe Illustrator:

Worked on lining up the different components to dial in the proper composition and began applying brush strokes to my line work:
rhs_-_logo-11-l1

Here is the finished piece.  He is Jamaican, so his colours reflect that:

Alternate colour palette :
