In 1974 I decided I could make a living working as a freelance artist. Someone suggested I start a business and name it. I envisioned a studio occupying a whole floor in a downtown skyscraper. It was to be a pastiche of artist from all walks of life. An exclusive club so to say, creating anything under the sun. Ahhh, Sun Art Works. The name stuck. I tried a few different things for a logo and lettering. They all sucked. The above script was done with a 1/4" square brush and India Ink on medium textured watercolor paper. I went through reams of paper trying to get it just right. I touched it up with pen and ink. It has remained unchanged every since.

I partnered up with some people in the late 90's and formed a small advertising agency. Sun Communications. We figured we could do pretty good with the right mix of talent. We didn't make it.
I thought the logo looked pretty good. It made us look like more than we really were. It was very versatile. I think our people in New York and L.A. would have loved it. I will never Know. Below are a few of the ways we used it.

I have listed Jay Asquini next simply because he is one my oldest and best friends in the business. Jay is a photographer and writer. Although Jay is an excellent photographer, I first met him as a writer. That is what influenced his logo. The font is American Typewriter. Here it is made to look like the metal letters on the ball of the coveted IBM Selectric Typewriter. Jay was never big on logos, he let his work do the talking.
