I struggled between these two for the logo of Cat with Goggles, but eventually yield to the simpler one. It's a lot easier when it's just a head (and the goggles, of course). The second option also allows for some "cuteness", compared to the general cool-vibe that is being impressed by the image of the whole black cat.
The BREAD MONSTER is something that I've wanted to draw for quite a while (haven't done it yet, but soon!). The draft's looking good =]
