At the risk of losing my Canadian citizenship, here is yet another baseball jersey design. This time it’s for Mega Man, a video game icon beloved by everyone except Capcom.
I am one of the few who likes to address him as “The Blue Bomber”, so I decided to use that as a team nickname (Winnipeg already does). I slapped on a few 8-bit sprites and voila, a very nice powder blue jersey in my esteemed opinion.
To complete this jersey a long-sleeve royal blue shirt would be worn underneath to replicate Mega Man’s forearms. A blue ballcap too maybe? Nah.
No plans to release this, but I will see if there’s a t-shirt to be had with my friends at 80’s Tees.
Samurai Jack has been off the air for 10 years, and it feels like a tie-in movie has been in development for twice that, but I digress. I’m a big fan of the show, so I’m happy to finally post some sort of tribute here.
I wasn’t able to use Jack for a hockey jersey, however his outfit is a better fit for a baseball jersey. His eyes reflecting off the sword will look cornball to non-fans of the show, but his eyes being framed like that is one of the show’s big calling cards.
No plans to offer this one, mostly because Samurai Jack is not as popular as I would like (a lot of folks still haven’t heard of it).
The second officially-licensed Voltron hockey jersey features a new front shield, gold numbers, and thinner stripes. A lace-up collar has also been added. I really dug the gold color of the cross and crown of the Masterpiece Voltron toy, so I added it everywhere possible.
Another baseball design, this time for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. This is a mix of the film’s title logo (which they’ve apparently dropped in favor of this one), with the uniforms worn by the team in the comic books.
I wanted to include all five Guardians, so I illustrated a “floating head” panel logo, much like the ones seen on Marvel covers for a few decades (late-70’s to mid-90’s I think). Star Lord’s insignia and an MLB-esque Rocket Raccoon logo round out the design.
No plans to release this design as-is, but maybe a stripped-down version can be done one day, should there be enough interest.
Speaking of offers, the folks at Geeky Jerseys are continuing their efforts towards adding baseball jerseys to their store. There’s a lot of logistics involved in regards to the manufacture of custom baseball jerseys, so please stay tuned for announcements. Personally I can’t wait, it’s currently too fraking hot out for hockey jerseys!
I’m happy to finally post a frequently-requested Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy design. Not sure why it took so long, but once I settled on a Winnipeg Jets-like approach it all came together quickly.
This won’t be made available*, because I am an evil blogger. But hey, if I win the lottery I will go to town on buying apparel licenses. Wish me luck.
*On second thought, something could be done. We’ll see.
Trying something new here for the Browncoats! I’ve opted to use the brown from their actual uniforms, and I enlisted the logo with black trim, which resulted in adding black to the color scheme too. The goal was to make a hockey jersey that a military would wear, hence the black name bar and patches that look like flags or ranks.
The neutral brown color really fought me here. I tried many different color combinations for the numbers and stripes, but ultimately I had to limit the use of yellow to the patches, and the white lettering was the only way to provide some contrast
For comparison here is the 3.0 version. Let me know what you think of the 4.0, as a Browncoats offer in the near future is likely.
