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.
A couple of simple designs for Supergirl and Batgirl, which are just an excuse to test drive a woman’s jersey template. I don’t believe Geeky Jerseys will be doing women’s sizes anytime soon, but I hope to post more designs for girls.
This design for Robin features a logo that foreshadows the Boy Wonder’s future as Nightwing (uh, spoiler maybe?). I was going for a 30’s comic book cover for this one, and the white letters really sell that style. I believe the San Jose Sharks are currently lacing up their collars just like the style shown above, which is perfect for a Robin jersey.
I made a few more Robin designs, please check them out here (it’s a .gif, so give it a few seconds to cycle).
Sadly there are still no plans to do DC Comics stuff. If I could I’d offer the Green Lantern one this instant.
When I was a kid I used to own the Wayne Gretzky Overtime table hockey set. Every hockey player, including those that came with the table, came with a little stand so you can display them when they’re not affixed to the table.*
I mention these table hockey players because they were small and fun to collect (and even customize). I’m hoping that one day a similar approach could be taken with NHL players from the EA 16-bit era (NHL Hockey 92, NHLPA 93, NHL 94 – NHL 97). These small figurines would be a blast to collect.
*These stands were great because you can snap them together to make a big team stand. A similar approach could be used for the EA figurines too.
UPDATE (March 16th 2014): In light of recent feedback I have changed the Baratheon jersey to black. A lot of folks don’t care for white jerseys, and I can’t say I blame them.
Here is a mockup of the jersey:
Original post as follows:
In light of the recent Direwolves 6.0 turning out so perfectly, I’ll be updating some older Game of Thrones-inspired jerseys to match the more recent designs. The Baratheon/Royals 2.0 design gets a deeper gold, new front logo, and new shoulder patches. New fonts for the name and numbers too.
House Lannister and House Greyjoy will also be getting updates in the coming days, and I’m still working on a new Night’s Watch design as well (no ETA on that).
These won’t be immediately offered, instead they’ll be listed in the By Demand section on the Geeky Jerseys homepage. My hope is to spur more interest in other Houses, because right now only House Stark is a sure bet to be offered on a regular basis.
I don’t mean to disappoint folks, but my design focus will be on the top five houses (Stark, Baratheon, Lannister, Targaryen, and Greyjoy) and Night’s Watch. Other houses like Martell and Tully are not on the radar for the foreseeable future.
There are many people asking for other houses to be offered (like Targaryen or Lannister), but it’s very difficult to accommodate everyone currently. Gone are the days when I could offer 2 or 3 GoT designs at the same time. Geeky Jerseys now only offers 2-4 hockey jersey designs a month to ensure quality, and the big hitters like Doctor Who and Star Wars usually grab all the available spots. If folks sign-up for designs in the By Demand section, Geeky Jerseys will offer that design.
Hopefully that clears things up a bit! Sorry if you’re waiting on your House to be offered.
A new version of the Reavers hockey jersey, good enough to compete against the Browncoats and Mudders if I may say so. My thinking here is “some species of men just want to watch the ‘verse burn”, hence the stars on fire.
I might have to start a Firefly League one day.
