Not A Harry Potter Jersey Design
The last few weeks I’ve been hounded to make this Harry Potter hockey jersey design available, because it was featured on Gawker. I’ve resisted doing so because I don’t want to draw the wrath of Warner Brothers (they have Batman) and J.K. Rowling (who is richer than Bruce Wayne) and so on. So I did my best to ignore the demand.
The last straw was when I was attacked by an owl yesterday, so message received*. I then set out to make a non-infringing design, which you see above.
Gone is “Gryffindor” which has been replaced by a single ‘G’, which could easily stand for Geek or Gangster (both apply to me of course). I also added a hubcap with wings – wink wink.
I think the logo would look awesome embroidered, even if it looked half as good as this Zelda crest I posted yesterday.
No plans for release just yet, though it is currently a candidate that can be made available in the next few weeks. Should it be made available, you could put whatever name (and number) you want on the back — just saying!
My question is, are you cool with the “Gryffindor” removed? Does it still invoke a certain house from a certain series of books based on a boy wizard? Let me know, I’m just trying to gauge reaction.
*Get it? Owl? Message received? Nevermind.
