Tarzan Of The Apes - Logo Design

I recently had the honor of designing the logo for the newest addition to the Edgar Rice Burroughs webcomic series, Tarzan Of The Apes!

It was a lot of fun to play around with textures and subtle jungle shapes. I created a variety of vector logos that could be used for comics and billboards and more!

Specifically below, is a clip of how the logo is being used for new Tarzan Of The Apes  webcomic.

The newest Tarzan strip is written by Roy Thomas, Illustrated by Pablo Marcos, and colored (and I believe lettered) by Oscar Gonzales. It was a lot of fun to work on the logo with them and the Edgar Rice Burroughs family.

Please check out the awesome new strip on the Edgar Rice Burroughs site here!
It's only $1.99/month and when you subscribe you also get to view all the weekly strips including Carson of Venus and The Cave Girl!

The Cave Girl at San Diego Comic Con 2013!

So it's been a while since San Diego Comic Con has passed, so I am sorry for the lateness of my post, but it was (in Martin Powell's words) "the very best of times" at the San Diego Comic Con Edgar Rice Burroughs panel! Here is Martin Powell and myself on the panel talking about the THE CAVE GIRL™. The strip premiered that day, which was also the 100th anniversary of the original novel!  It was a centennial celebration! 

Here a pic of all of us on the SDCC "Edgar Rice Burroughs: "Tarzan, Carson of Venus, and the next 100 Years of Adventure!" 
The panel members included myselfMartin Powell, Scott Tracy Griffin, Andy Briggs, Steven E Gordon, Jim Sullos, and special surprise guest Roy Thomas!
Afterwards, we all met at the ERB table with the Burroughs family to sign illustrations and take photos. The Burroughs ladies where amazing and so involved in continuing their great family legacy that they came in Cave Girl outfits! 
It was an amazing time and I already can't wait to go next year!
