BL Garden of DFW Logo

One of three proposed logos for a local anime and manga club I attend. We focus on a genre called boys' love (BL), otherwise known as yaoi, which is a genre written and drawn by women for women, but depicts male homoerotic relationships.

The rose is a traditional symbol associated with the genre, so I definitely wanted at least one rose logo. I incorporated a heart to show not only our love for BL, but to connect to the romantic nature of the genre.

Because it has come into question in the past... my logo process starts with me gathering information about the client, looking at photographs and other logos. I draw all my sketches by hand, scan them, and then draw them in Illustrator. I would never deliberately copy someone's work and do not take kindly to false accusations of theft. Any resemblances to other logos in existence are 100% coincidental.
