So I needed a little logo to use as the imprint for my publishing company Moon & Son. It had to be very simple, because it has to reproduce well very small, not only for the title page, but even smaller--it has to fit on the spine of a book so maybe no larger than a quarter of an inch square. I found an old woodcut image full of Masonic symbols, including the moon and sun, and I really liked the stylized moon. But I was having a tough time cleaning up the image so it was sharp.
I mentioned my difficulty to Bro. Ray Gordon. Ray's an excellent graphic artist I meet in Pekin a few years ago, and he said "send it to me." I did, and this is what he sent me back this afternoon. He not only cleaned it up, but that moon's profile changed somewhat. It looks like somebody I know, I just can't put my finger on who it is. Handsome devil whoever it is.
Thanks a lot, Ray. I've got my imprint now.
