    Thanks Caspar!
    im still not totally happy with the pitcher plant "drawings"..
    they arent exactly what I want, but they are the best I can do with the tools available to me..
    those are made from real photos of my own pitcher plants!
    I went and took pictures of my pitchers, then heavily modified them in photoshop to get that "drawing" effect..then reduced them to pure B&W, then added back in pure green and pure red..
    so there is really only black, green or red pixels in there..

    There is a lot of excellent CP art on-line, that would work really good for a logo like this, but for a public logo we wouldnt be able to use any of it..(copyright issues) so basically I needed to create the entire logo from scratch with my own personal artwork..which is what I did..
    I might still try to tweak the plants some more, I would like to make them
    look more like a simple line drawing..but I want detail too..so its tricky!
    this is the best I could come up with so far..
    its not bad! I like it, and it might the best that photoshop is capable of creating..so this will probably end up being my final rendering!

    Mines done(besides the letters) and I think it might compare to Caspers.

    Ok...here is one version. I'd like to try some others if I get the time. This is just a rough version...the plant figures need work. It could be used with or without the words around the outside and the typeface on the outside might need changing. Its two color...I wanted a "sarracenia green" and "anthocyanin red" (although the colors wil not view correctly on a computer).




    And the black and white:



    Just an idea....
