Cardio Ninjas

This weekend I made a t-shirt logo for a friend. She has a gym team called the Cardio Ninjas. I bounced around a lot of ideas before settling on this one.

I drew all kinds of ninja poses--several of them were variations of jump kicking ninjas with jump ropes. But I didn't like any of them as much as I liked the dynamic running pose. They have a group slogan: "You'll never see us coming" so I added that in gray. I went through a ton of cliche oriental fonts, before I settled on that one. If you don't know about dafont.com, you should check it out. I could lose hours just scrolling through fonts all day.

Thanks to Robin for sending the project my way. I know I'm supposed to be working on my novel and not my illustration stuff, but it was a fun diversion.
