Ideas & concepts

I have very specific requirements for this logo, please follow all of these bullet points, otherwise your logo will not be accepted:
1. Must be pure BLACK and WHITE. No colors, and likely not using multiple grays as I should be able to invert the image to place on either a white or black background.
2. The name "Sketched Out" must be the primary focus of the logo and EASILY READABLE. You may also write it as "Sketched Out!" with an exclamation point at the end.
3. Logo should be roughly a square or slight horizontal rectangle in dimensions
4. Logo should relate to drawing/sketching/artwork in some way.

Now, my current thoughts are for a logo with a pure white background, with the words "Sketched Out" outlined (i.e. text is also white, just the edges/immediate area outside the text are black to make it readable). I would like to have a pencil or pen depicted in the picture, as if it has just sketched the logo. "Sketched Out" is also a play on words, so perhaps a little drawing of some sketchy/shady/criminal activity may also work to integrate into the logo.

I have provided two rough pencil and paper sketch of my initial thoughts for the logo. I would expect your designs to feel similar, unless you have some better ideas. I have also attached the logo of one of my present games Quick And Dirty, which I like the design, and shows how the logo needs to be able to be inverted for either a white or black background. I have also attached a competitor logo, which has some decent elements.

Something along these lines looks good, though letter could be clearer.
V1 attempt. I don't like how strong the letter outlines are, but this is the gist of what I'm going for.
This is a logo from a different competitor's drawing game, and I like the sketched out background aspect around the Telestrations logo. Also surrounding the main logo as if it was on a notepad might look good.
Other logo on white background example.
Inverse of same other logo on black background. The Sketched out logo needs to be able to be inverse like this.
