    If you've got access to Photoshop, you can use the Photoshop VTF Plugin to save your clan logo in the proper format. Check out this page and information to see what flags you'll need, should you want alpha or something else in your texture. I believe then you should be able to simply save your art as a VTF file and put in in the tf/materials directory.
