Artfest logo / theme?

I think this is it.  The artfest 2011 logo.  It feels so weird writing 2011.  where did the time go.  I mean seriously?!  Anyway...been trying to work on other logo ideas but nothing else is clicking with me (this isn't 100% either but...out of the rest...). Is it too cute?  I think that is my problem with it.  

Anyway...based on this logo, what could be a theme that ties in that you could wrap your mind around?  (i.e. feathered friends, pale freckled eggs, imaginary plants, etc.) or just have the logo and no theme.  I used to go themeless for artfest but it seemed people like one for their trades and gallery pieces.  Anyway, I'm all ears.

  1. Birds of a feather flock together for a theme.

  2. Hi Teesha,
    I have been following you forever but have never commented on anything. How about BOTANICAL BIRDS.By the way your art is magical. I can never wait to see what you do next.

  3. I love birds of a feather, idea.
    to add mine.....eggs make me think of incubators, so something about incubating ideas or hatching, now this is sounding corny as I write it never mind

  4. "Nourishing Creative Growth" is your theme. Let people interpret it however they wish. It's a beautiful logo. One I'd be proud to wear on a t-shirt or skirt pocket.

    To me it looks like a mother bird nourishing and caring for her eggs/offspring. I agree with Cheryl. Nourishing creative growth is a great theme.

  7. I agree with Cheryl and Marie. Nourishing Creative Growth (at) Artfest 2011 is a great theme... Oh how I would love to go. I love the logo. It's not too cute, it's awesome. I like it as is but would love to see how you would add color to it.

  8. I definitely like the birds theme too - art taking flight, nourishing nest, all that sort of thing. Birds are magical creatures!

  9. How about "Feathered and Fanciful"

  10. i love it. the bird feels mystical, magical to me. anthropomorphic. it doesn't feel "too cute" to me. it totally works.

  11. I actually like the egg thing - hatching creative new ideas - rebirth of artfest for yet another year. Having said that, I like all the other ideas too!

  12. the first thing I thought of when I saw it was hatching creative ideas too! I love the idea of birds of a feather too...Both of those tie in with nourishing creative growth and everyone could interpret that their own way.
    Cool!

  13. It's a combination of cute/freaky (the bird person), the rest is quite invitational and intriguing. I love the idea of using bird/flight/wings representing nurturing (eggs), nesting (the community of artfesters) and taking flight(the inspiration and techniques we acquire)!

    I love this logo, not too cute. But if you weren't 100% sold on it, what about flipping through your picture-a-day black and white drawings for some inspiration?

  15. Teesha- Love it just as it is!

  16. I don't like what appears to be a naked human behind sitting there on the ground. I think it is unintentionally suggestive in a bad way.

    The rest is great!

  17. I just have to say that I am really missing having AFF to look forward to!
    missing you and the creative spirits!

  18. I like the logo a lot, it's not too cute, there is actually something quite raw in it.
    How about 'Black and whit'e as a theme.
    Or 'From a bird's eye view'...
    I like the associations of 'eggs' too...

  19. I'm loving the bird theme in general.

  20. Way, way less cute than the owl. I say go for it - slight refinement only if you feel it necessary but I really like it as is! Ginny

  21. Love this! It would look very nice on a t-shirt or a cup or a bag!

  23. how about something like "sprouting wings" ?
    Covers the birdiness and the plantiness...just a thought
    had a great time at artfest this year and looking forward to 2011 (you're right, that is weird to type!)

    How about "in the garden" or "creative garden" as a theme? It is a bit broader than the literal interpretation, but encompasses both the plant and bird parts of the image.
