I am stuck in a situation and needing a little advice. My oldest daughter is a member of a group at her High School that does things for the community & environment. She hit me up asking if I could make her a bat house to display at a conference they are going to soon. I looked around and came up with a design I though was neet and commenced to working on it (actually started yesterday).
Well my situation is the name, logo, and best way to go about it. She attends Arkansas High here in my home town and their mascot is…. You guessed it “Razorbacks”. So the name they came up for the bat house id “RazorBats”.... I though it was catchy and cool, but had no idea they didn’t even have a logo for this idea yet. So last night when it dropped below freezing I decided it was time to do some work on the computer… In the house… Where it is warm….lol
I have a little experience with a program called GIMP (it is a free alternative to Photo Shop). I used 3 different images, changed them WAYYY up, and combined them. Well now I cant make up my mind if I want to scroll out the design and attach it (thought of using very thin plastic cutting board and spray painting the cut out design with Fusion paint). Or….. I could go pick up a wood burning pen and learn….lol.
I am leaning toward the wood burning idea seeing how this will be out doors and worried about the epoxy I would use holding up attached design. There will be small parts if I cut it out and this seems like a nightmare to me. Where burning it in will be there…
Just wanted to see what yall though of it…. I have no experience with this and not sure what is the best direction…..
BTW… Here is a rough draft of the logo I created last night….. I wasn’t to worried about the logo being copyright due to I am making it for Arkansas High…
