Despot Pictures - Now With 100% More Logo!

Steve came over today and we riffed out a corporate ID for the production company. It was great fun - just like in the olden days when we would get together and draw and brainstorm. Steve is one of those artists who thrives on the creative energy of others and is totally in the moment. He's a master at bottling lightning.

So he took the basic sketch home to vectorize and play with it in Photoshop, and then we traded files for a couple hours tonight. He did the actual work from my design concept, and I laid in the text. I can't wait to put some old Soviet music behind it and see it on the screen. I think it'll make for some nice business cards too.

Now I'm going to bed...

Thanks Brian & Cindy!

Cindy, the group I work with (formerly with Sam) is Twelfth Night Productions (

They are the anchor tenant at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle. Youngstown’s location is on their website: It’s on Delridge Way SW near the West Seattle Bridge.

Feel free to have your son drop me an email (todd [at] deep7 [dot com]) or something if he feels like he wants to help out. We can always use the help!
