LOL.... the chickens are actually about twice as big as they were before with a bit more detail. I thought this was for his sign in the Philippines so I bumped up the resolution so the color separation would be cleaner for the silk screen process. I didn't realize this was for a bumper sticker.... LOL. The silhouette background tells the back story... The white banner and already existing logo he had for Getting the flock out of here have the same color to tie them together. The white banner with black printing bring the Name recognition part out to the forefront easy to read in any light.
I think you are right about the palm trees. As art I was hoping the white would tie in with the plane and banner. Its either not enough to matter or like you say too busy. Compositionally the three chickens with rooster looking across to the Golf bag. The triangle goes up from the chickens to the plane and from the plane to the golf bag. Thats how we humans perceive things at a glance.
Thanks Nikon.... VBG toescrape....
The logo was meant for a sign and to use in electronic media.
The merchandising products are an add-on. More as give aways for friends really. The hi-res image is great and I really appreciate it.
