Greener Pastures: a No Doubt fan site

Tom & Eric blog posts

Tom recently posted a trailer for the film “Midway” on his blog.  I was happy to see this, because it’s a subject that I have strong opinions and feelings about.

Eric Stefani also posted an interesting entry to his blog regarding the design of the self-titled album cover:

“The “Pitcairn Motel ” in Anaheim

It was twenty years ago today . . .

I used a Motel in Anaheim to get the right lettering for my bands logo. It’s got two themes of letter to give a cartoon flavor. Gwen the singer of the band want the logo set in flames. I thought it made it more Heavy Metal but I tried to make the flames “flat” and “stylize” to work with the logo from the album.
I was very disappointed that after spending so much time on it to find out after handing the artwork over to the person in charge of the art that they carelessly retraced my artwork in the computer. It came out wobbly and was not accurate to my hand inked artwork.
It still makes me sad that this was the best they could come up with.
This logo I created for the band was made in 199o for the album released on March 17, 1992.”
