Monogram exploration for a personal project...

Nice and readable Mike.
i did an mm for a recent project, and kept running into it looking like a spider, or something. this looks great though.
@Ivan - Thanks bud.
@matt - Kept running into the same damn thing...
Glad to hear that's kind of worked itself out at this point.
Love this brotha! What is your method to breaking the lines?
liken it so far Michael.
@Mike - Just lines expanded to outlines, chopped up with pathfinder tools. All the breaks are mathematically even / proportional overlaps.
As far as knowing 'where' to break the lines, it really boils down to what looks best (I.E. A bit of back & forth). For designs like this, I like to think about them existing in a 3D space, as if I built it with my hands from the get go (I.E. Can I make this?) I think about how the light would play, and then I take some creative liberties to strike a balance between stylization and clarity.
@kailoon & @Mike - Cheers guys.
Mix Master Mike?
I guess what i meant was how do you decide what to take away?? does that make sense?
@Mike Ha! Just edited my reply to you (above). I figured that was probably what you were asking...
@Isaac - Ha!
