I have an idea I'd like to look into, but between finishing my last 2 weeks of Master's work and having another baby next month, I'm not sure I'll get to it soon, or at all. :-/  And I really have to bust through that Master's work because it really has to be done before baby comes.

I'll definitely try though.

Best wishes for that timing, I had the same issue last year hoping to get my immigration to Canada approved before my baby was born in another country without me being able to reside there with my wife potentially...all while struggling to get a CD released before I moved to Canada and lost access  to my precious recording space...fun times...

Hopefully things will pan out for you!

So I went with a completelly different approach. Sadly it'll suffer from the pixel style. I tried making my logo look like a title card from an old horror movie, so minimalism was key. I could work a little more on it, but there is no time :\

I used as reference, in special, the title on the cover of Bela Lugosi's Dracula. Enjoy!

Well, despite the idea in my head that I might be able to make, I'm not gonna get anything in unless we end up pushing the judging back another month.  If we did postpone I'd make another try at it, but don't feel like anything needs to be changed on account of me.  I'm not trying to use the special powers of the not-yet-existent Stopwatch award...I knew it was slim chance I'd get anything started right now.  :-P  :-)

It would be unfair to those who already submitted if I move the deadline.
Either work your asses off this weekend or be a judge for this one.  ;)
Deadline is on Sept. 26 (11:59 PM PST).

I have a logo I made years ago that I still like.

Is it against the rules to enter stuff you made before?

I see no problems with that as long as it wasn't circulated online before this contest.
