Logo #48: Coal Chamber
Designed by "alternative metal" band Coal Chamber's guitarist Miguel "Meegs" Rascón in 1996. Meegs: "I designed the logo before the band put out its first record. I drew the logo on a piece of paper with my left hand (to make it seem like a child wrote it), then took it to a tattoo artist and had it tattooed on my right forearm. After this, the band decided that the tattoo should be the logo, and the rest is history!" Short and sweet, just like the logo, which lives in a happy post-nuclear family of uncertain emotions and unclear futures to go along with the ironically tentative present. Glass Pinata (no tilde, oddly) is Rascón's latest band.
