A new logo for Angel Bloom

Posted on: April 12th, 2019 by samdrawsthings No Comments

Talented artist Hannah Corley came to me for help with her logo and branding as she starts her own business.  Like all my clients, I asked her to start with a Pinterest board of things that excite and inspire her.  This is such a great place to start when you’re thinking about your brand.

She sent me the most beautiful board packed with sunflowers, bees, warm browns and yellows and vintage fonts.  Sometimes people don’t really know what they want and I put together lots of different ideas and colour options for them to choose from.  Hannah knew just what she wanted the look and feel of her brand to be, so my job was to simply create some different logo layouts for her to choose from.  I tried the sunflower and the been in all sorts of combinations!

The final logo is classy, elegant and whimsical and I cannot WAIT to see it in use as Hannah starts her business 🙂

If you would like some help with your logo or branding, do drop me an email.  I can send a copy of my full portfolio and we can have a chat about ideas.  I work a lot with small and creative businesses, charities and good causes and would love to help you.

Drawing on Unicorns

Posted on: November 4th, 2017 by samdrawsthings No Comments

It all started with a trip to Hobbycraft…

Actually, the trip came after I discovered the work of the wonderful Athena of Entangled Forest, and bought a gorgeous little Pegasus from her and started to build up a virtual Instagram friendship.

Then, I went to Hobbycraft, and in the sale bin I saw this guy…

And I had an idea.  What if I drew on him?  So while sitting in the car with a napping toddler, I started sewing into the lovely unicorn as if I was drawing…

And it started to feel a bit magical.

And I went back to Hobbycraft for something completely different, and this happened:

So now, I have a little collection of unicorns looking for new homes!  They are all unique – even though their bodies aren’t hand-made, they have very different characters and poses, and they are all decorated by hand, and some of them have had a bit of surgery and extra TLC.

There are a few different breeds.

First up The Motleycorn – is the original monochrome unicorn, decorated with hand stitched stars:

Then there’s a hand-drawn version of the Motleycorn:

And as I started to stretch out of my monochrome comfort zone, the Lunacorn was born:

Which then lead to the creation of the Galaxycorn:Drawing on unicorns - by illustrator Sam Goodlet - www.samdrawsthings.com

And then, because the world of colour was opening up even more and just because, there came the Rainbow Unicorn: Drawing on unicorns - by illustrator Sam Goodlet - www.samdrawsthings.com
