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
Two designs for your eyeballs today, so I hope you can forgive the lack of shoulder patches on both (at least for now). I present hockey jersey designs for the X-Men and the Sentinels.
For the Mutants I wanted a subtle ‘X’ in the main logo, hence the crossed claws of Wolverine. For the Sentinels I gave a shout-out to the 90’s cartoon intro, where mutant-grabbing cables extruded from the hands.
I doubt either of these could be offered, but I’ve been wrong before.
UPDATE (Feb 14/2017): I just put the finishing touches on a 3rd X-Men design, the Hellfire Club. It is based on the uniforms worn by the hockey program at Harvard.
