new logo for pedale?

Making design for yourself is tough.  A designer will naturally progress in skill and experience changes in taste.  This makes creating a long lasting brand for yourself very difficult.  I  have always found fault in my logo, website, business cards, etc...  Which makes promoting myself impossible; for example, i may have a pocket full of business cards, but i dont like how they look anymore, so they will stay in my pocket.
With that said, i have made a attempt to create a better, hopefully more timeless logo mark for myself.  The pictures above shows what that logo would look like on a potential business card. Any comments would be sincerely considered.

quills sssssshirt

Nathan from Quills Coffee asked me to layout a new shirt for his shop using an illustration from Douglas Miller.  i am happy with how it turned out.  the psychedelic lines, hand written font, and wispy banner all work really well with Douglas's fine illustration of a deadly cobra holding tightly to one of Quills signature in-house red cups.
