DOM (Pig) vs. ING (Lion)


I think it came out quite nicely,
and I learned how to use Illustrator and InDesign 
a bit more in the process.

(And if you disagree, please reserve your opinions,
because I spent at least two and a half hours getting it this close,
and then I walked home, mostly starved, 
and in drizzling rain, without any appropriate rain attire.)

It looks fuckin' good.


I used the colors from a more updated logo, 
with the eyedropper tool!,
which is why they look a bit off from this one
though this one was our main model.

My design team (Wee/Jon) also preferred having a line.
My mom thinks we should include the year,
but Wee and I think that by including the year,
we won't be able to reuse the shirts as an investment for other times
Dom might choose to run the marathon.
We'll see.

I found the pig online,
and I used Illustrator to fix him up into the pig that I wanted,
and that's what took like two hours.
That you can't just highlight the image and select the color
to change the selected image to that color is beyond me.
(Hint: Use the sparkler/magic-wand thing.
Then press: Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, A, B, A, B, start,
and you're closer than I was a few hours ago.)

Thanks, random Internet person, for posting the pig though.
I tried drawing a Picasso-like pig,
but it didn't look anything like the ING lion's style obviously.

It's not that Dom loves pigs
as much as he adores eating them,
but a slab of orange-y woodcut-looking bacon
looked stupid.

Now it's time to make some T-shirts
in time for the big race!
