Some ppl on FB are claiming they see a map of north america in the wings... I dunno, maybe. It would explain the poor proportions.

I think alot of it is just the coloring is so boring. I definitely do prefer the purple.

On the Dragon*Con (...yeah, call me a rebel, but I refuse to give up the asterisk) Facebook site, D*C stated that "The logo was based on an original creation by Don Maitz."

However, when I inquired into what specific piece of art the logo was based on, or if Mr. Maitz had any direct input into the logo, my post was left unanswered.

I somewhat wonder if it was loosely based upon this piece by Mr. Maitz...

i think the new logo was based on a very cheap DC board asking one of their nephews to draw a new logo and then using that. And apparently that nephew was a fan of cartoons and simplicity.

sorry...i dont care for the new logo.
Why cant Dragon*Con last all year?

Now you're talking!

If they had started in the upper right corner of this picture and drawn a box down past the wings and body (not even including the tail and feet) that would have made an awesome logo.

And now I know why the profile of the head looks so much like Chinese menu clip-art.  FLAMES!  You really need flames from the mouth of the dragon.

I have to say I was and am a pretty big fan of the old logo. It was a bit dated but it was cool. Did need updating though and I would say I'm lukewarm on the new design. Certainly won't affect my con though. It's a blast no matter what the logo looks like. ;)

Yeah, I gotta say, that really looks rather lackluster. The old one wasn't great either, but at least it had nostalgia value. This looks like they just asked some teenager with self-taught PS skills to make them a logo. They really oughta have a contest to come up with  a new logo. All the various tech geeks and artists that show up at the con, I'm sure they'd get some killer submissions.

The more I think about it the more I hope they will take all the feedback they get and use this new logo as a sort of interim situation until they find something better. The idea of taking submissions has been floated all over the interwebs and I think they should take that into consideration, since their con is full of artists and what not. :P Maybe we should start a movement!
