The word ‘Ghostbusters’ sits perfectly on a baseball jersey. That’s all I really have to say!
Ah spring is in the air (albeit a few weeks late here in Canada), and that means Baseball season. And for my first baseball jersey design I thought I’d enlist Doctor Who, which has been a popular item for hockey jerseys. Here’s hoping it looks good on the jersey of the American pastime as it does for the Canadian one.
I’ve long pledged to break out into other sports here, I just have a lot more fun with hockey jerseys due to the bigger canvas. That said I do enjoy the aesthetics of baseball, and enjoy the style of many teams. The above jersey is a homage to the Los Angeles Dodgers, a team that has a timeless look to their uniforms.
At this time Geeky Jerseys does not make custom baseball jerseys, but that could change quickly so stay tuned. Also I don’t know the frequency in which I’ll be posting baseball designs, but I’ll try to get to them whenever I can.
Taking a page from the recent Red Dawn design, this Sunnydale Slayers jersey is also based on a letterman jacket seen in the show.
I still hope to do a proper ‘Slayers’ design one day, at least one that is not too graphic (like a Vampire being impaled by a stake).
Just like how video killed the radio star, video games have killed table hockey (at least here in North America, it’s a national pastime in Sweden). One factor is that hockey video games continue to evolve, while table hockey has remained essentially unchanged since it debuted in the 1930′s.
I still have fond memories of playing table hockey, having owned a Wayne Gretzky’s Overtime table in the early 90′s, with a bunch of extra teams and add-ons (like a Zamboni). That table saw many games. Nowadays very few people I know are interested in playing the game. Breaks me heart.
With that said, I’d like to offer up a series of ideas that will shake things up for ye olde table hockey game. Today we start things off with the key component of the game, the hockey players themselves. Read the rest of this entry
Here are a few odd designs I either posted on Facebook or never got around to posting on the blog here:
As promised when I did a Wu-Tang hockey jersey design last year, here is a Public Enemy jersey. As you can see it looks almost identical to the Spaceballs jersey, that’s because I made this just before that design was posted.
The Ben 10 jersey is old news, but the Alpha Flight design hasn’t been posted here (was previously something I posted on Facebook). It got a good reception, maybe offer it for Canada Day? The maple leaf actually extends to the back too, but It made reading the back number difficult, no matter what I did color-wise for said number.
UPDATE: Here is a Spinal Tap hockey jersey. I wanted to make it all black, but I don’t like practice jerseys.
The Canadian equivalent of Calumet High! Well, not exactly. Degrassi is something of an institution north of the border, thanks to the current iteration of the show. However I’m saluting the version of the show from my childhood, Degrassi Jr High/Degrassi High.
This is a hybrid of the soccer team uniforms and the school sweaters. I replaced “Junior High” with “Hockey” for the shield logo.
I got Netflix this month and I’ve been re-visiting the show, and I have to say it still holds up pretty well despite its age. Now when will Beachcombers hit Netflix?
