the origin of peanutink

i thought it might be fun to share the origin of my site name and also take a peek at some of the peanutink logos i've done over the years and compile them into one quick image...

0. peanut + ink = "peanut" was a nickname given to me by the guy i do Android Automatic album artwork for back in 1999.  the "ink" is self explanatory i think, but it was also because when i was 17 i had a baby dream that if i was to ever be incorporated, i would  be peanut ink.  instead of peanut inc.

1. 2001 pnutink logo - i used this forever, way before i even considered myself a commercial or freelance artist.  this image was taken of my logo etched into glass by an old friend of mine.  it currently resides above the doorway to my office/bedroom as a testament to my roots...

2. 2008 magic peanutink logo - i was getting heavy into seeing magicians and falling in love with the art of magic tricks...

3. 2010 peanutink logo - a few years later, i decided to cut the magic act and simplify the look...

4. 2013 pixelswatch peanutink logo - after many years of deciding to finally launch a website, i spent some time working with this new logo knowing it would become the representation of all my future creative calling cards.
