I thought I'd share more BloodBowl "fluff" since creating it satisfies my creative urges. These images are logos I created for another player with an Amazon team called "6 Inch Heels". Again these are not drawn by me, just creative uses of Photoshop and images found on the web.
Creating these logos made me rethink my feelings on rappers who sample other musicians songs. I never considered sampling very artistic and I still believe it takes less skill than creating something from scratch. However, it does still take some talent to be able to figure out what to sample and how to re-use it in an interesting new way.
By the way, the second logo was the one that ended up being used.

I play a game online called BloodBowl. (http://www.fumbbl.com) I like to create "fluff" for my teams which is geek speak for things like logos, helmets, etc. that make the teams seem more "real". The images above are team sponsors I created for my Khemri team, made up of mummies and skeletons, called Cursing Mummies.
I didn't draw any of the images above. They're mainly just Photoshopped versions of existing logos and/or made from fonts I downloaded from the web. However, the Bloodweiser image is from Wacky Packages.
Those of a certain age may remember Wacky Packages as the collectible stickers that were parodies of real life products. They had many imitators but the one that came closest in popularity was probably Garbage Pail Kids.
If you want to relive your youth you can find Wacky Packages info at http://www.wackypackages.org/ and Garbage Pail Kids info at http://www.garbagepailkidsworld.com/
