My name is Mark Laubenthal, and I'm one of the new Scribble Nerds!
I'm a digital illustrator who works on game apps and children's products & toys for a living; I like to think of myself as a cuteness connoisseur. I'm super into animals, monsters, cute characters, food, toys, stickers, and game art (especially old school 8-bit). Fun fact: video game art was what inspired me to want to be an artist. I still remember at 3 years old drawing Mega Man on the outside of my parent's house with a pen.
On to the challenge. For the first challenge we were to design a logo for Scribble Nerds. I immediately knew I wanted to do one that had a hand-written feel for the word 'Scribble' but also incorporated a nerdy "8-bit" vibe for the 'Nerds' part.
