Things from my hard drive: Afra Idofabe

September 16th, 2009 No comments
Afra Idofabe
More than two years ago, for some reason I don’t really recall, there were free .be domains to be had. I think it was some kind of marketing for –  a new hosting service? — can’t remember. So we toyed around with funny domain names idea. Registering obiwankeno.be was almost naturally.. and then there was afraidofa.be, potential bee-allergic-central, or like I mentioned in an alternative interpretation a guy named Afra Idofabe. Starting from that name I imagined a bee with an afro hairdo, looking kind of threatening, but fun.. and in contrast to all those other ideas like this, this one actually ended pretty well.

The initial sketch did not bring over the my idea very well, so it was received with very little enthusiam. The version you see was made in Inkscape, which I can’t recommend often enough as excellent free (as in freedom) vector graphics tool. I just imported a scan of my initial sketch and handtraced it with splines and stuff..

I still like the result..
