    Hey Squid, it looks busy enough to arouse an Octopod. (edit; keep it, condense it, make it more square)


    I absolutely will not post a picture of my makers mark just to appease the masses. ;)

    It may have personal meaning but no one else will know or remember because it's too busy.
    If it were me I'd incorporate the "k" and the backwards "P" and forget the stuff in the middle.

    I like the one on the right better. I think it offers quick recognition while the one on the left is pretty but too busy.
