Anyone know the designer?
Another version with custom lettering, as shown in a “mid-70's edition of the book World of Logotypes”.
I was making pen and ink drawings from (donors’) thumbprints at art fairs etc. in the late ’60s and throughout the ’70s and ’80s. References in my character drawings — such as “I’m Thumbody,” “Thumbody Loves Me”, and “the thumb-buddies” — were attached to many of my thumbprint drawings and my signature on my checks incorporated my thumbprint. The character used by the mental health associations (and later copyrighted by them without my permission) was created by me and sold to them in the form of buttons. All their copyrighted characters embody my thumbprint … and I have the thumb to prove it!
