very specifically looking for a simple logo, something to use on merch
circular design could be helpful but not necessary, don't let that restrict you
the challenge is capturing the essence of the stim below into simplicity, think even as far as Matisse line drawing, Picasso's camel, Dali's Chup-a-chups logo, silhouette may work
can incorporate leaves element if it works (eg on a necklace) but not necessary

useful stim:

The nun/goth/vampire cross-over also perhaps useful:

  • Online (Website, facebook etc.)
