Honored to have been asked to put together the official branding for the 2012 Rails Rumble next month.
Check out the Rails Rumble blog for more info on the competition and and post about my logo.
A larger version of the sketch and a larger version of the vector (including the ridiculous luchador mask I made with the initial R's) are attached.

That luchador mask is incredible...awesome work
Looks fantastic! What lead are you using?
@The Pursuit of NY - Thanks!
@Nikita Prokhorov - I only use Staedtler 2H and HB leads in constant rotation (hence why I bought a second leadholder) for different parts of my sketches. 2H is amazingly durable and crazy sharp for doing some serious detail work, and the HB is plenty soft for darkening and filling in forms without crumbling all over the piece and needing sharpened every three seconds. :)
I love that voodoo that yoodoo. Seriously, though, I don't know HOW you type geniuses do this.
@Rogie - A downright unreasonable amount of practice. :)
Why are you so awesome all the time ? There's no place left for the rest of us.
@Joachim Vu - Just trying to find a spot next to you, brother. :) Thanks, man.
Can you do "Bob Seger" in the same style?
@Colin Miller - Thanks, man. I can't speak for Bob, but I can "Seger" in any style you like.
(This made a lot more sense before an unfortunate typo correction. You had to be there.)
Sweet! I love how unique the R's are.
Looking great, Ryan. Really love that mask. Is this finished? It seems like some of the negative space between the baseline and the tails on the R/S/B/L could be a little more uniform.
Beautiful flow Ryan.
That's gorgeous stuff, dude. Curious: was this the first concept you came to or did you have other sketches/revisions that you chose this over? Just wondering a bit more about your process, my friend. ;)
Stop being awesome.
Actually, keep being awesome. It's awesome.
This is super nice! One thing though... i read "Rumb"i"e instead of rumb"l"e first time...

I took Ryan's logo that we're using for Rails Rumble, and I 3Difyied it and made a desktop out of it. Couldn't be more out my comfort zone, and I'm very self critical but I suspect a total of 2 people will use these :)

@Colin Miller - You just had to go and correct your error making me look like a dork, didn't you?
@Ryan Hamrick What error? :)
@Ryan Hamrick but let it be known, if Seger could draw type...it would be of this caliber...and that my friend, is the greatest complement you will ever receive. Frame that and put it on your wall. All jokes aside this rules.
@Colin Miller - I'll take it, man. Means a lot, even from a yinzer (and with that, everyone else in the comment thread is completely lost).
total beauty Ryan, those swashes and the way they interact is just gorgeous. Nice touch on that A too!
Those Staedtler's are great. You can get the lead super sharp.
Such great work, nicely done @Ryan
