A Trio Of 80’s Hockey Jersey Designs

Greatest American Hero by Dave Delisle

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

X-Men Hockey Jersey Designs

X-Men Hockey Jersey by Dave Delisle

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.

Arrested Development Hockey Jersey Design

UPDATE (Nov 1st 2016): went with a ‘less-is-more’ approach for this design. The old logo had the stair car itself, which, let’s face it, was too busy/ugly to look at. There are two older designs for the Stair Car and Banana Stand as well.

Office Space Hockey Jersey Design

Office Space logo by Dave Delisle

This is a long overdue design, I just couldn’t arrive at an idea until very recently. A few folks requested an Initech-themed design, but the company logo and colors bored me to tears (probably the design’s intention). So I decided to make Milton’s red Swingline stapler the core theme. Hope you like it.

In the wake of Netflix signing Adam Sandler to a 5-picture deal, my first thought was they should’ve signed Mike Judge instead! Judge makes terrific low-budget comedies that never seem to fit with the traditional studio model, and Netflix would be a perfect home for his films. Hard to believe it’s been 7 years since his last film. Read the rest of this entry

Princess Bride Hockey Jersey Design

Dread Pirates by Dave Delisle

About 3 years ago I posted a Dread Pirates design, which I since deleted because I felt it was too plain and simple. Thought I’d give it another go, this time with an injection of color and new patch logos for both the ship and the mantra belonging to these Pirates.

Donkey Kong Hockey Jersey Design

Donkey Kong arcade cabinet by Dave Delisle

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.
