Logo Design in Adobe Illustrator
All you need to begin is an image to use for the reference like the one Ihave below of the gecko.Now on to the tutorial!
Step 1-Place the Original Photo as a template.
With a new document open (8.5"x11" artboard should suffice), you willwant to place the image that you will redraw as a template.
File->Place->image name->check template box 
 This will place the image on its own locked layer with its opacity at50%.A new layer will also be created above this one automatically.  The image should appear faded out as the one tothe left is.
Step 2- Rename layer 1
Double click on layer one and in the dialogue box rename it Line art,this is where you will begin drawing the main outline of the gecko. 
Step 3- Begin tracing using the pen tool
.Select the pen tool in the tool bar, or press "p" on your keyboard. Usingthe pen tool in Illustrator takes some getting used to, as youare nowdrawing by adding points or "anchors" and shaping the lines with thehandles that appear after a two anchors have been connected.

 The next two screen shots show the progression of the outline drawing.
we are only drawing an outline around the main body, I will putthe legs and toes on a seperate layer. 
Step 4-Add a layer for the legs.
Click on the new layer icon (indicated above) and add a new layer,name it legs.I like to simplify things and using seperate layers can sometimes aid inthis.
