I’m not saying this will get made, but if it does the numbers would be metallic silver. So shiny. So chrome. Anyways, here’s a design that languished for a few years now, glad I can finally share it with you today.
Originally the back patch was a roundel design that said “I LIVE, I DIE, I LIVE AGAIN!”, but it probably wouldn’t work for embroidery so I nixed that. I don’t think the highway sign will make the cut for that same reason.
About a year ago I had a request-a-thon on Facebook that led to Wyld Stallyns winning the popular vote. I apologize that it took so long to make, I didn’t find the right inspiration until I remembered the Detroit Pistons logo from the mid 90’s to early 2000’s.
The shoulder logos are a riff on the Doctor Who ‘DW’ phone booth logo. The back patch is a nod to Death, the Grim Reaper from the sequel. The colors are definitely mid-90’s, when teal was all the rage.
Sorry for the long sabbatical, I will ease back into things with something simple: a jersey based on the Mobile Infantry flag from Starship Troopers. The ‘Victory’ patch is based on a flag seen in the cafeteria fight scene (with Mazzy Star playing in the background), the ‘Death From Above’ patch is based on the tattoos adorned by the Roughnecks.
I have posted stuff based on Starship Troopers before, but I deleted them all because they look so weird to me now. I have a tendency to quietly tinker with older stuff, but this was such a departure it merited a new post.
Also, this film turns 20 this year, so let that sink in (you’re welcome).
One of my biggest regrets is using a lot of Vancouver Canucks imagery for the Boomsticks 1.0 design. I am still emotionally scarred from doing that, being a diehard Calgary Flames fan and all. After watching Army of Darkness again recently, I was inspired to do a 2.0 design based on Ash’s S-Mart getup at the end of the film. I can now put this trauma behind me. Read the rest of this entry
Happy Halloween! I’m freezing as I type this but I’m in a baseball mood. Could it be the storied Cubs-Indians World Series? Perhaps. I will probably make a hockey variant of this soon, so stay tuned to this post. Read the rest of this entry
Sorry for the lack of new posts, I hope I can make up for that real soon. To start things off, here is a jersey based on the Greatest American Hero, a callback to a time when television had only one superhero show in prime time (this show came on after The Incredible Hulk was canned). Nowadays, there’s a superhero show on TV every night. You whippersnappers got it real good! Read the rest of this entry
