Donkey Kong Hockey Jersey Design
Thought I’d do a design that is a homage to the original Donkey Kong arcade cabinet from 1981 (35 years ago!). All of the logos are updated versions of art found on the cabinet. Donkey Kong himself is a mix of the current Kong with the 1981 original and the 1982 Donkey Kong Jr. version (the teeth mostly). There’s a “DK” on the front neck too, to match his necktie.
Ideally I’d go overboard with stripes and colors to match the arcade cabinet, but I like to keep Geeky Jerseys’ production methods in mind when creating designs. That means a more conventional approach towards layout and trying to limit the number of colors.
Not sure if this is going to be popular enough to be offered, but I enjoyed drawing it up.
