Nellz: Band logo

Band Logo: We R Nation

by Jesse 'Nellz' Nelson

My band is We R Nation; we're a rap/rock band with socially conscious lyrics, but with a bit of a party side. Kinda like P.O.D mixed with Linkin Park mixed with Killswitch Engage type aggression.

Make Yourself a Band Logo

First theme for us, and sort of an example of the kind of work to submit I suppose. It's a bit simple me up! The theme is to make yourself (plus someone else is just fine) into a band logo or poster. No other rules really. We'll adjust as this goes. Post your pieces to the blog (centered and large-sized please) and give a little description, list your mediums, whatever you'd like. Deadline is next Sunday, the 5th.

Marcelo & Jodi, the most awesome indie rock band with a bit of punk and sometimes, folk. Completed with Illustrator. (btw that is my haircut for those who haven't seen me in a while :D).

The Rules

Draw Bit is about smaller works. They may be a bit sketchy, line drawings, some washes, but still feel...finished. This is a blog with a weekly deadline and theme to exercise our brains, create more regularly, challenge ourselves, and open up discussions.

So, here are some guidelines:

Deadlines and themes will be posted on Facebook
Take a few hours or a day to complete it, we're not going for complete works of art here
Keep these to one color as much as possible (the limited palette helps keep these short and sweet)
Use any medium you want: pen, pencil, watercolor washes, ink, Illustrator, Photoshop...
Create in whatever style you want: still life, portrait, illustration, character design, comic panel, typography, package design...
Keep it open, get some conversation going, critique, discuss, and have fun with it
