Flatiron Joe logo art

A couple of years ago I was asked to design a logo for a NYC bar in the Flatiron district.  I don't really do logo designs any more but just this once I made an exception. It was a lot of fun but the place closed not long after I finished the work.  It's a shame, because I was looking forward to grabbing a beer and a burger there the next time I made it to the city.  You'll occasionally see some of these preliminary sketches mis-identified as Goon prelims.

  3. Very Cool!!! I did one for a NYC bar called Barfly. It's been sitting there for years because they don't feel like laying out the money for t shirts or jackets. (?)

  7. This is really great Kevin. I'm not exactly sure why, but it has a strong WPA feel to me. Thanks for posting the piece along with the prelims. I love seeing that process material.
