I’ve been a huge fan of Nikola Tesla since I was a kid and, when asked to write about a scientist, I chose Mr. Tesla. I got in trouble a bit by insisting that he helped to invent the radio, even though the teacher said that was nonsense. I didn’t care though, cause I got to find out about this amazing man at a young age. (By the way, if your interested in finding out more about him, I totally recommend the book ‘The Man Who Invented the 20th Century’ by Robert Lomas – a great read)
I created a Nikola Tesa design when I first started Lee Lee and the Bee, but was never really happy with it. The resolution of the image was too low, and the way I had made it meant that it could only be used on dark items, which I think limited its appeal.
Now though, with a bit of time up my sleeve, I have been able to revamp the design. I’ve boosted the resolution and made it more ‘vector’-like, to give it a crisper, cleaner feel. The changes have also meant that the background colour can be changed to suit ones tastes, without compromising elements of the image.
