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.
It’s been a month since I posted a hockey design! Sorry about that (I am Canadian, get used to many apologies). Anyways I hope you like this design for Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I chose the Black “flesh wound” Knight because everyone prefers dark-colored jerseys.
The design features a chain mail pattern on the arms and the side of the torso. I added a red trim for some much-needed color.
We might be able to offer this one if there is enough interest, so please like, tweet, and comment to let me know.
Another baseball post, but this is one that many of you have been waiting for. My friends at Geeky Jerseys have made this Time Lords sample jersey, and it looks pretty spiffy if I may say so. I changed the numbers to match the Tardis 4.0 hockey jersey, other than that it’s the design I posted last year.
So would you be interested in grabbing one? The same name and number customization would be offered. A price point is TBD, but I’m hoping they’d be cheaper than hockey jerseys. Let me know by liking, tweeting, and commenting.
Lastly a special thanks to Geeky Jerseys for making this jersey and taking these first steps towards branching out into other sports. Exciting times are ahead!
And my first-ever Back To The Future design for this blog is a baseball one! And why not, baseball feels more old-timey than hockey in my opinion.
Initially I wanted to do a caricature of Principal Strickland, but I opted to enlist Elmer Fudd, and he looks great as a sports mascot. Also the Looney Tunes character is very anachronistic to the 50’s, and I’d like to think the students at Hill Valley would use Elmer in the same rebellious fashion.
As for the lack of pinstripes, sorry but those look better on white jerseys. Also my readership has an aversion to white jerseys, so the above design reflects what I hope people would want to wear*. Also I decided to use a Yankees-style logo instead a baseball script logo (seen above) for a change of pace. The logo can be interpreted as an H and a V, or H-V-H, or 2 H’s (not sure why you’d want 2 H’s!).
*Hopefully Geeky Jerseys will have some news on baseball jerseys soon. And when that happens I’ll probably revisit this and other baseball jersey designs.
