My new screen saver! That is awesome!
I bookmarked your page.
I like the concept of upside down and backwards,
You should try to make a logo for a tire company, so it can be read anytime the wheel stops , from any angle.
Sorry, I am being practical again.
Thanks for doing it.
Just my observation, but the second O in Foo is obscured from my perception, it could just be me, and may very well be my inability to always see the abstract...but are we missing an O or something?
Please don't take this the wrong way, I like it, and am using it as my background. I like it just the way it is!

Darn, the page changed. I need to post the pic again.

I just realized, I don't know how to post pictures.

No, the first O is tucked into the F(made up of the arch of the r and the s looked at from the other angle), and the second O is made of the 'stalk' of the upside down r.
If that makes sense...



Glad you like it.

Yes, I see it now, might be just a spacing issue for me. The empty space between my ears! LoL It is cool.

Basically, the trick is that it reads the same upside down as it does the right way up!

This, and a 'half-ink/half-pencil' version can both be found on my DeviantArt profile - http://bromley001.deviantart.com/

I LOVE this...mirror image effect and upside down, love it! add some color and even as is-so awesome!

So - another cheeky little 'logo' I've just sketched, in tribute to my two favourite bands - presenting: AeroFoo...

Another fine drawing. Are you a "self taught" artist or did you do some formal training?

Man, this is a great background. That is awesome Bromley. You're working far too hard for us, I feel bad I have no sipport to offer right now.
Money is what i mean... I support you, I'm just broke.

Oh, don't worry about cash. I've always been told I should try and earn some money from my drawings, but I get stressed out if I try to work to a deadline, or if I'm commissioned to do something in particular. I just draw what I like, then post them online to get feedback, that's good enough for me.

Dallas75 - no, I've been drawing since I was a little kid.Started with cartoons, copying UK comics like The Dandy and The Beano. Always wanted to go to Art College, but just never got round to it. When I left school, I went to college and started doing an Art A Level, but left after a few months. The annoying thing now is that I regularly chat to Dandy artists on Twitter, and they're the same age as me, and I think, "I could be doing that..."
Instead, I studied performing arts at college, got a qualification, did some amateur dramatics, went to Uni, attempted the first year - twice - of a Science & Science Fiction BSc course, then did the first year of a Drama degree (where I passed the practical stuff, but didn't do enough written work), before returning home. :/
I prefer to do single drawings rather than strips though, and when I'm in this kind of mood, where I knock up drawings on an almost daily basis, I feel good. As I say, I may not get any money for them, but geeting positive feedback from people is a boost.

Cool, l did Art all the way thru high school (senior school) and loved it, even the theory side. I just remember being told that the mirror type sketches as you did earlier are one of the hardest drawings you can do. You should try and make some money from them if you can. Positive feedback from me all the way...l think you are one talented guy.

Thanks Dallas. I always appreciate positive feedback and praise - it makes me feel less of a show-off!

Before I did the upside down logo the other day, I had a different Idea. Followed that idea up with this sketch this afternoon:



It's kind of broken up, like a smashed mirror, with different parts of different sized logos. I like it.

^ This ^ with the Foo Heart outlining it, I almost see a face in it too, something to think about.
Thanks Bromley, cool stuff.

Please, call me Si. Bromley's my surname, it sounds a bit impersonal. I'd've had Si as my username, but I couldn't.

It's funny - my mum said she could see a face in it when I showed her, but I can't really see it unless I squint!
