a company called "sounds true" had me paint their logo. i would show you a picture of the original graphic but i'm too lazy to upload it to my server. just google "sounds true" and see for yourself. though to be fair, the company may be gone by the time i finish typing this.

this is a request from someone who also attended my alma mater, Carnegie Mellon University. he asked me to paint what i think our mascot should be. well, he picked the right person for the job because i have some inside info.
i was actually a member of the group that oversaw choosing the current mascot. are sports teams are called the "tartans" which is a type of plaid. (yikes.) and the school put together some students and faculty to decide a mascot to represent us. that group ran a survey to let the students pick. the ranking was as follows:
3. a highlander
2. a scottie dog
1. optimus prime
yep. the students thought optimus prime should be our mascot -- via write-in votes -- by a HUGE margin. it was absurd and awesome.
yet, the students did not win. our mascot is now the scottie dog. cool. but nowhere near as cool as the sentient, transforming robot that we deserve.

lately, there's been lots of controversy over the health effects of being an NFL player. though this is a logo for a Nebraska team's defense, i think it's more fitting for the sport in general. football helmet + the poison symbol. (plus it's adorable to make the problem more palatable.)
