Signing our Scosha mascot. I developed This little character in my 20's back in Australia while I was In art school he/she, gender wasn't specific or important and still isn't, it crept into my work in a really abstract way at first, it started with the points of the crown representing vallies and mountains to indicate the trials and tribulations, then morphed in a crown symbolizing control, we are the king or queen of our own internal kingdoms, and later developed eyes and a body, to indicate the inner and outer spirit. Originally called the "greedy puppet" to express the struggle of pushing though life, and for me early adulthood demons. The greedy puppet followed me around and was dark and kind of unknowingly torturous as my enemy but also became my companion. When I left Australia and traveled the puppet popped up to test me, in my doodles, painting, writings, and eventually into the start of my business, it was clear this was my logo, it went without question.
But his/her name no longer fitted. Greedy: everything that's wrong with this world. Puppet: an empty head on a stuffed body that someone manipulates and controls, it Had to GO! We had changed, we decided we could choose the way we feel and think despite how tragic and horrific things are in the world and there ARE way to many fucked up things it can be so unkind
So still with out a name, though many refer the logo to "crown face" we stand for
NO to bias and gender, racism, ageism or any other isms or arrogance. The crown is still about your control and you can control the way you decided to look at life as jacked up as it is, we can make that decision to see and feel the unconditional moments of beauty, amazement, and pure joy.
