The postcard is a night away from completion. Below is a piece of clipart that I developed, which is at present serving as an eye-catcher for the postcard and as a semi-official logo for the business:
As you see, I abandoned the agressive images from last entry and strove to show a symbolic computer happy, confident and at peace. The image below shows the steps I took to arrive at the image, revised with Laura's helpful comments.
Starting at the top left, I drew a corner and reflected it twice to make the monitor shape. I then added color and drew half of the face, which I would later reflect horizontally to keep things perfectly symmetrical. I decided against an open eye and chose a mirthful squint. In the second row, I adjusted the cheek shapes, which Laura thought looked too much like ears, and inverted the lines at the corners of the mouth. In the third row, I adjusted the tops of the cheeks, angle of the eyes, and the mouth shape and position. In the fourth row, Laura has pointed out that the face looks too old. Altering the shape of the nose makes the difference. In the last frame, I have widened the chin to align with the cheek curves.
That's all for this time. Until!
