Got a new logo for the blog. The original one that's been up since the beginning (2010) was something that I hand-drew and took a photo of and photoshopped it to look pixelated. Yes, this is what my real-life handwriting looks like:
Funny how a logo redesign makes you think about your blog's identity. I originally made the below logo. I originally wanted to make it like bad NYC bathroom vandalism, and decided, hey, I'll make this blog a dark-fashion, NYC-centric blog. But, then, eh, I'm not really into that scene here and shouldn't pass myself off as an authority in that area. I'm not. I like what I like and I blog about that.
The new logo was inspired by retro book covers and VHS video stills. That's the lock to my door, and that's a picture of my hand. I think it sums up my style perfectly: dark but not in a traditionally spooooky "goth" way, grungy, very NYC. The font I used for "a dark-fashion" blog is a throwback to my cybergoth/industrial days, whose influences show up occasionally.
Maybe this is a good time to ask for feedback. Is there something you'd like for me to blog about? Posts you enjoy reading? Posts you don't?
