I enjoyed putting this logo together for my wife's blog http://readingismysuperpower.wordpress.com
She is doing a "Favorites Friday" feature. I started with pencil, then recreated it in the iPad and then finished up in Photoshop. I use Photoshop instead of illustrator because it's what I cut my teeth on. I still find Illustrstor annoying. I'll use it when I have to, but it doesn't help my creativity.
