I currently have a business/hobby designing business cards, and basic print advertising for businesses, but lately I have been receiving requests for more complex projects such as logo design.
A client of mine is currently asking me to design a logo for their business, which sells t-shirts with funny phrases on them. Their business name is Paw Attitude (motto is Loyalty Barks), and all their phrases are to do with dogs.
I have made up the main part of the logo, but had an idea to have a cartoon of a dog standing at the bottom of the logo (to the left, standing actually outside the box) - about the same height as the logo, biting the top left corner of the logo, and pulling it down. The problem is, I am no good at cartoons or character design, so I need to find someone to help me with this cartoon.
The shirts this business is selling are for both guys and girls, so the dog would have to be suitable to be printed on the pocket of either gender (for example, a lot of guys may not want to buy the shirts if they have a cartoon of a cute poodle on the pocket). I would also like the dog not to look too mean though, cos a lot of the phrases are talking about how great dogs are. The cartoon will also need to be seen on various colours, as the shirts may range from everything from black, to white, to pink.
I have included the logo as I have designed it so far (without the cartoon of the dog), but if you think it would be better if it was changed, that's fine - just let me know any ideas you have!
I have also found a couple of cartoons of dogs I like here...

but as I said, the nature of the dog would have to be friendly, but also be suitable for a tough guy to wear. These examples are just the type of drawing style I like.
Copyright for the logo would also have to be handed over to the business to do with what they want (print as many copies as needed etc), and your name will be put on the credits wherever applicable (I will let the client know exactly what I got your assistance with, and what work you did).
The client has also requested this logo be designed ASAP, so please also let me know how much time you will need so I can let them know.
I am charging this client almost nothing for the design as my business is currently a part-time thing, which just gives me a hobby while I'm taking care of my baby daughter, so I can't afford to pay a lot, but if I continue receiving requests like this (which I have already had a couple of queries for, so I am assuming I will) I am going to make it a full time job, but as I don't have a lot of time, being a mother of a 10 month old girl, and I don't know much about cartoon/character design, I would love to set up a situation where I can work with you in the future with jobs such as this, so I can come up with an idea for the logo, do as much as I can, and just get you to do a character/cartoon if needed, and pay you for your time and give you credit for your work.
I would love to see examples of what you can come up with for this logo (just a basic example is fine - just to see we're on the same page design-wise), but if you prefer, please send me some examples of similar work you have already completed, just so I can check it out before I choose a winner.
