Even if you don't like sports, there are many sports logos with which you may be familiar. But here's the thing: even if you DO like sports -- even if you instantly recognize a myriad of logos and create the semiotic link in your head to the team they represent on a daily basis -- they're insanely hard to recreate from memory alone.
This is our ongoing series where we attempt to recreate these logos using only a drawing implement and our own all-too-fallible human memories. Please enjoy our horrible attempt at the logo and accompanying anecdote, then give it a shot for yourself in the comments below. Have fun!
The San Diego Padres are a baseball team! Their cap logo is about as standard as you can get from baseball caps. Here's what I remember it looking like:
That's fairly straightforward (even though I still didn't do it right). So here's your real challenge for the week: DRAW THE "SWINGING FRIAR" ALTERNATE LOGO.
Did you know there are two versions of the Swinging Friar? I didn't remember until after I drew this! (Tip: I was pretty far off.)
Here are links to the logos for AFTER YOU'VE ATTEMPTED YOUR DRAWINGS. WE'RE ON THE HONOR SYSTEM YOU NOGOODNIKS. The cap logo can be viewed here and the two versions of the Swinging Friar logo can be viewed here and here.
