Attack of the 50-Foot Mikhaela!
Redefining the Mikhaela brand
I drew my old logo over four years ago. It's a simple, smiling self-portrait of me holding a marker, and wearing an anti-Bush T-shirt (changed from the Boondocks T-shirt I wore before my strip got picked up and I wanted to stop referencing someone else's strip in my logo).
But as I redesign my website, I've been thinking a lot about the image I want to project in my new logo. Am I a sad, resigned... liberal? A motivated progressive? The angry cartoonist woman reaching her boiling point? Etc. I finally decided that it would be more fun to pretend that my cartoons are a lot more powerful than they really are. So I present for your amusement my first sketches of Mikhaela the Angry 50-Foot Cartoonist:
And just so you know what sort of lengths I go to to get you your cartoons every week, here are my digital photoreferences (although unlike Brian's, they are not animated!)
