My second assignment of the week was inspired by my first assignment, but this time follows the Logo Switch Up assignment rules.
While looking for inspiration for my first assignment, I stumbled upon the logos for Cabbage Patch Kids and Garbage Pail Kids. I knew it would be a fun mash-up. Cabbage Patch Kids were popular dolls in the 1980’s and Garbage Pail Kids were a play on baseball trading cards.
To start I needed to find a clear and editable Cabbage Patch logo. Similar to with my first assignment, to eliminate the unwanted logo letters, I “Quick Selected” the components I wanted to keep and painted over everything else with white to match with the pre-existing background.
The next step was to get the Garbage Pail Kids logo. I was able to locate a logo someone had already created.
Next, I knew I wanted to incorporate a Garbage Pail Kid to replace the Cabbage Patch baby on the logo. After a little searching I found one of the original kids.
I isolated the head, erased the rest, and put it all together for the finished product. Looking back, the hear is a little pixilated, I should have soothed out the edges and maybe manipulated the resolution to make it look less Photoshopped and more cohesive.
