    Thanks so much for taking a look! The place is a cozy spot that seats under 25. It's usually quiet between "rush" hours so people like to enjoy a drink and the wi-fi without any disturbance....

    They're all lovely, but I'm concerned that most might be a bit too intricate for a logo. I like the turtle/pot best, but for some reason I want to see his spout on the right side.

  • Marquetry

    I'm wanting to get the effect of marquetry in a design - is this as simple as overlaying wood textures onto vector shape? sorry if this is a really simple question, i may be overcomplicating the process in my head!

    It is probably just that simple. Vary your wood sampling of course so you aren't using the same grain in every piece. Just remember that if you want it to look like real marquetry, it can't be absolutely perfect. Even machine assisted inlays have a bit of a gap here and there. When using computers to illustrate hand crafts it's often hard to remember to put in the faults.
