My very first assignment as SPJ’s Web guy involved something that had nothing to do with the Web, which was great because I had no idea what the hell I’d just gotten myself into with quitting my day job to redesign a humongous Web site from scratch. (Long story short: I got the job done. Somehow.)
Anyway, this is a logo for SPJ’s then-new Narrative Writing Workshop series. They wanted something clean and simple, so that’s what I gave them. Actually, I tried something a little more out-there as well, but it was a little too out there and this got the nod instead.
I’m still looking for a way to use that other drawing, and I actually have a plan if the Cubs reach the 100-year-without-a-World-Series-win milestone. One more year. I’d cross my fingers, but really, do I need to?
