wow erm..... i never really thought about that.. so much one can do....
i would want it to be black and red
maybe id have s rose on it... a skull or scythe?
perhaps my thingy that i have on my sig.. or the there one i have...

the words? something along the lines of
"Embrace the sweet darkness that surrounds us"
or "everything returns to the dark in the end"

(i cant remember what i was thinking yesterday the second one is the closest i remember)

egh my mind is stuck on things like this today lol, ill try again later perhaps

Dunno about the visual, but I have a motto.

"sum caste ego, ipse"

I figure everything else will change anyway. I mean, ok, I wil too, but I'll always be ME, coz when the 'I' changes, the 'me' will change with it so I'll always be me, y'know? Even when the me changes, so the future me isn't the present me (like the me that's ME now) but the future I will match the future me and the present now me wil... Ok, at this point I'm boardering on the dadaist, so I'm just gonna go sit in a corner and slowly rock back and forth until the crazy talk subsides.

Yay Bag Sheep Skip Banana Snail Tantrum Dead Horse


Sofa






*much later*



Ok. all better.

Good question! Well of course the background would HAVE to be purple! The Ouroboros (serpent devouring it's own tail) would be the symbol. The message inside is the tricky bit. Trying to sum up all that I am and believe in in a single phase? Not sure it can be done. I couldn't decide on one but a couple thoughts are;

'Never send to know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee' John Donne
'Oh what a life of luxury, to life like an ape-man' The Kinks
'Contentment destroys all hope of progression' Solvo
'Love is but a word, but truth of emotion saves us all' Solvo

I'm sure there are many other little phases that I'd like to use and I'll probably add them later. Thanks for the question, another good chance for self evaluation....

Wow, brilliant answers from everybone and I *still* wouldn't know how to answer this myself. Embarassed

I think I thought of this question because of a coat of arms I saw which was a mock up using modern logos in a shield. It looked absolutely awful but it made me think how amazing the old coats of arms were and how people must have sat down for ages thinking of what to put on them. After all, they were often family crests or representative of kindoms and families, etc.

Gotta keep thinking of one for me! Shocked Laughing

Argh! Me and my typos! I swear I have to stop typing with my fingers sellotaped together whilst balancing a bowl of blancmange at the same time. Razz Razz

Jaska, interesting symbol. Is it one you've created or is it a symbol that has been designed somewhere? What is it's significance?

Love the colour choice as well. I think if it were me, I would prefer a dark, almost dried blood red on black which would brighten at night to a shimmering blood red. But I'm not trying to hijack your design! I just like dark reds. Razz

yeah, i wouldnt have it too bright XD that wouldl just look weird....

ive had a thought on what it represents - power and ability to access all areas in a particular field...
i guess if i used it magic wise, then the above as well as centring of energy (represented by the arrow)
