Category Archives: Hockey Jersey Design
I’m not a fan of prequels but Better Call Saul has certainly won me over these past few years. My hope is the show eventually moves beyond the Breaking Bad timeline to present day, so Saul Goodman could redeem himself in some way.
Anyways, the jersey design is based on the show logo and Saul’s office/business card from Breaking Bad. The shoulder patch borrows the Lady Liberty logo from the New York Rangers 90’s third jersey. If any lawyers are offended by this design, I’ve done my job.
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).
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.
