Seeing as how my first and last names are generic, I started my personal logo by making plenty of sketches.
I tried using my initials and name, then with an icon.
I liked the idea of an icon, but not of my initials, so I decided to use my whole name with an icon.
I then came up with a quick icon of myself, including key items like my glasses, my backward cap I always like to wear, and headphones.
I liked the initial icon and continued with it by making it thicker, applying color, and evening outlines.
